MOVIE: THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE preview with a movie gift card giveway

Dear Readers, I’m excited to share a preview of a movie that will release very soon. The Zookeeper’s Wife starring Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Help) and Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War).

Based on a true story, The Zookeeper’s Wife portrays Antonina and Jan Żabiński, a Christian couple and zookeepers in Warsaw, Poland. The film is a testament to the power of compassion, faith, and courage within us all.

The film focuses on courage and doing what is right in the face of danger. The true story also shows us an incredibly strong protagonist that Jessica Chastain portrays. Tell us about a courageous woman in your life who faced obstacles and found a way to overcome them. How has she helped and inspired you rise above and tackle some of life’s hardest issues.

In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care.

When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist.

To fight back on their own terms, the Żabińskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

Please leave a comment to be in the drawing for a $25 Fandango gift card so you can see the movie free when it comes to your area.

I don't know anything about her but,it sounds like something I would enjoy. I like stories about people who worked with the Resistance.

I have been hearing about this movie. I have not read the book. I would love to see the movie.

Lena Nelson Dooley said...

Hi Everyone,

Glad to see you here.

Miralee, it's not about rescuing animals. It's about rescuing Jews from the Nazis.

Bonnie Engstrom said...

Oh, Lena, this sounds incredible. I definitely want my grandchildren to see it, my husband and me, too. I just hope the animal part isn't too sad.

It's so good to see so many good friends as well my loyal blog followers leaving comments. When I was offered the opportunity to feature this, I jumped at the chance. Even though it was a hard movie to watch, I loved Schindler's List. I love hearing all the people who helped the Jews. I know God rewarded them.

I would like to see this movie.

Patsy Moore said...

I want to see this movie, even though it's one that will cause me to shut my eyes quite often. I cannot even imagine the type of life these people had, and yet we complain about doing the dishes? Aren't we glad we had something to eat so that there are dishes to wash! Can't wait to see this, and yes, Lena, put my name in the hat!
