SYNOPSIS

Adapted from the novel by Thomas Keneally , Steven Spielberg 's masterful film tells the incredible true story of the courageous Oskar Schindler ( Liam Neeson ). Initially a member of the Nazi party, the Catholic Schindler risks his career and life, and ultimately goes bankrupt, to employ 1,100 Jews in his crockery factory during the Holocaust. Schindler's Jewish accountant ( Ben Kingsley ) serves as his conscience, as Schindler conducts business with an obstinate and cruel Nazi commander ( Ralph Fiennes ), who viciously kills Jewish prisoners from the balcony of his villa overlooking a prison camp. Filmed entirely in black-and-white on location in Poland, Schindler's List does not downplay the faults of its magnanimous and unlikely hero, but relates a story of the triumph of the human spirit in the face of horrific devastation and tragedy.
