Lore is released here this week

Out today is Lore, the new film by Australian director Cate Shortland, which is based on Rachel Seiffert’s book The Dark Room.

The plot follows the five children of a Nazi officer in the last days of the Second World War who are trying to reach their grandmother. On the way, they meet a Holocaust survivor who shows them photos.

The photos are genuine: they are of the German Jewish family of Ms Shortland’s husband, film-maker Tony Kravitz, whose grandmother left Berlin in 1936.
