Set in 1980, the German film centers on a doctor (Nina Hoss) exiled to a small town from East Berlin as punishment for applying for an exit visa from the GDR (East Germany). Planning to flee, Barbara remains icy and withdrawn around her colleagues. Masterfully controlled and totally absorbing, this Cold War thriller expertly details the costs of telling and withholding the truth. German. Rated PG-13. One hour, 45 minutes.
