Quotes & Highlights

“Gut-wrenching performances by an extraordinary cast. Brilliant director Michael Brainard balances the heavy emotional tug of war between the two protagonists.” -Tolucan Times

Description

Taking Sides, by Ronald Harwood, is a powerful examination of the denazification trial of Wilhelm Furtwangler, conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. While no nonsense U.S. Army Major Steve Arnold investigates, Furtwangler fights for his freedom as Arnold dragnets his search for a high profile celebrity guilty of supporting Hitler.

Directed by Michael Brainard
