The story is based around the life of a young Jewish girl (Ricci) and the struggles she has to suffer through. Firstly she is sent to England and renamed Suzie when her home becomes too dangerous. She then moves to Paris to join a theatre company where she befriends Cate Blanchette and meets the mysterious Johnny Depp. She falls in love with Depp but then has to make heart wrenching decisions when a world war moves closer. This is a truly haunting movie that really sticks with you forever. I have to admit that this isn’t my normal type of movie and I bought it because I am a fan Depp, but there is no way to watch this movie and not at least feel for Ricci and the decisions she has to make to survive. The costumes and atmosphere of the movie are brilliant and really add to the overall effect, so this film is worth a watch, as you won’t be disappointed
