Jessica Chastain stars in the new trailer for real-life World War II tale ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’.
Jessica Chastain is one of those actresses who just adds a veneer of quality to any film she joins. Rapidly approaching the heady heights of legendary thespian talent, it won’t be long before Chastain’s name will be muttered alongside Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett in the house of super actors (as opposed to Super Actors, a failed comicbook franchise).
Chastain is lending her acting chops to the real-life tale of husband and wife team Antonina Zabinska and Jan Zabinski, who saved the lives of many Jewish people in Poland during the Second World War.
Directed by Niki Caro, whose previous films include ‘Whale Rider’ and ‘North Country’, and based on the best-selling book by Diane Ackerman, ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ looks to give an insight into one of the more unusual war stories from a largely female perspective.
‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ hits UK cinemas on May 5th 2017
