{The Lives of Others}


The Lives of Others has recieved an Academy Award Nomination for Best Foreign Film, but if you haven't heard of it yet don't feel left in the dark. While the film has racked up countless awards overseas, it has only recently been given a US release date. The Lives of Others will open in select theaters stateside on February 7th.

Synopsis: Set in 1980s East Berlin, director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's debut feature provides a subtle portrait of life under the watchful eye of the state police as a high-profile couple is bugged. When a successful playwright and his actress companion become subjects of the Stasi's secret surveillance program, they're not the only ones affected; their friends, family and even those doing the watching find their lives changed too.
