David Hare’s screenplay (based on Bernhard Schlink’s book) shifts audiences from a young German boy’s (David Kross) sexual initiation with an older woman (Kate Winslet) to his encounter with her a decade later at a war crimes trial where she appears as one of the defendants. Brilliant performances are directed by Stephen Daldry and include supporting roles by Ralph Fiennes, Bruno Ganz and Lena Olin in this exploration of guilt, innocence, morality, and redemption.
