Not a classic, but by God what a movie.

Sophie Scholl was executed by guillotine by the Third Reich for her Hitler resistance activities. She was found guilty of distributing leaflets at her college campus and for this she was beheaded along with several of the other brave young people of the "White Rose", an underground Nazi resistance movement. This is a dramatization of that event, it is a movie that will not leave you and will have you thinking about it for days after viewing. I highly recommend this film. I found myself drawn into this movie like few other movies will do. This is brilliant stuff. The tension becomes almost unbearable. The depiction of Freisler (The judge), which might seem over the top, but is quite consistent with accounts and actual film clips of the trial, maybe even understated. He was diabolical, tyrannical and very hot tempered.
After reading many rave reviews from regular people, I ordered this 2005 movie over the Holidays from Netflix. It was sooooo good, I just had to purchas a copy
