Resistance, directed and written by Jonathan Jakubowicz (Hands of Stone), follows the story of Marcel Marceau (who would find fame as a mime) and his efforts to save Jewish children whose parents were killed in the Holocaust. Marceau’s own father died in Auschwitz. Marceau gave his first show after the liberation of Paris in August 1944.

Before he was the world-famous mime Marcel Marceau, he was Marcel Mangel, an aspiring Jewish actor who joined the French Resistance to save the lives of thousands of children orphaned at the hands of the Nazis. Jesse Eisenberg stars in this compelling drama about a group of unsung heroes who put themselves in harm’s way to rise above hatred and oppression during World War II. As a young man growing up in Nazi-occupied Europe, Marcel has no intention of getting involved in the war – his pursuits include impersonating Charlie Chaplin in burlesque clubs, painting backdrops for his plays, and antagonizing his obstinate father. His life is thrown into upheaval when he is recruited into the French Resistance, putting his acting skills to the ultimate test in teaching orphaned Jewish children how to survive in the horrifying reality of the Holocaust. Based on the inspiring true story, RESISTANCE follows the revolutionary tale of a selfless act that would forever change countless lives.

The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Ed Harris, Édgar Ramírez, Clémence Poésy, Matthias Schweighöfer and Bella Ramsey.

Resistance opens in US cinemas and VOD on 27th March 2020.
