This family-friendly film tells the story of four Norwegian children on the run from the Nazis during a freezing December in 1942. Ten-year-old Gerda spends her days imagining herself to be one of the Three Musketeers and bugging her older brother, Otto. But when their parents are suddenly arrested just before Christmas, Gerda is called upon to live up to her imaginary self. The children learn that their parents—part of the resistance—have been secretly sheltering two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, in their basement. Frightened, but determined to carry out her parents’ mission, Gerda determines to take Sarah and Daniel to neutral Sweden. Director Johanne Helgeland beautifully crafts an incredible story of friendship, bravery, and righteous acts for all ages.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)
