Consensus: A film that begs the audience to reflect upon their own courage and strength of character in light of this young heroine's daring story.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

The realization that we are, in many instances, listening in on actual proceedings gives the film an immediacy that no dramatist could hope to match.

Houston Chronicle

Through it all, Jentsch is a beacon of bravery and resolve in the darkness of a totalitarian machine. If any actor in an English-language film has given a better performance in the past year, I'd like to see it.

A very tense study of the last days of Nazism, and a worthy homage to a true heroine...

Time Out

The film holds few surprises, though it builds a remarkable level of suspense during the fait-accompli interrogation scenes, and is a well-intended commemoration of a courageous young woman.

A disturbing film about courage, idealism, youth and the grim mechanics of mankind gone mad.

Kam Williams
Upstage Magazine

A claustrophobic bio-pic which telescopes tightly on the torture of the fearless activist till her demise after less than a week in the hands of Hitler's sadistic interrogators.

There's a resonance to Sophie Scholl that crosses borders and approaches the timeless.

Frank and frightening.

The film has an immeasurable fascination that makes us look on as voyeurs and wonder how we might have reacted during such desperate times.
