Watch on the Rhine Reviews
Classic Lillian Hellman play that is a bit dated, but still packs a decent emotional punch.
Paul Lukas and Bette Davis flee Europe as World War II progresses. He works in anti-fascist groups and it has been too dangerous to keep his wife and three children there. They move in with Davis' mother and brother in Washington D.C. where the family quickly learns that the enemies may be just as close as they were before.
The Best Actor Oscar went to Lukas in a very meaningful performance. He helps lift the film even when it becomes filled a bit with propaganda-like sentiment.
It can't happen here? Hellman sure wanted it to.
