This review is from: Devil's Arithmetic [DVD] (1999) (DVD)
Kirsten Dunst plays Hannah, a young Jewish teenager, spoiled and more concerned with her friends than family. She attends the Passover Festival only because she has to. Various relatives try and tell her of the Holocaust to which she has little interest. She is then mysteriously transported in time back to Poland in 1941 and learns first hand the horrors of the Final Solution. Kirsten Dunst rises to the challenge of such a harrowing role. Brittany Murphy also gives a sensitive performance. This film pulls no punches about its subject matter and just might make you think. Recommended.
