MILADA
2017, 124 min, Czech Republic, Dir: David Mrnka

This stunning biopic of revolutionary Czech politician Milada Horáková’s (Ayelet Zurer) fight for her country’s freedom was nominated for Best Film at the Czech Lion awards. While her story is not widely known outside the region, Horáková’s fight for gender equality is as timely as ever. Zurer gives a passionate, memorable performance in the title role, while Robert Gant provides a moving depiction of her supportive and defiant husband. With its award-winning costumes and makeup, MILADA is a film as beautiful as it is tragic.
