Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and the Best Actress prize at Cannes, In the Fade stars Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) in one of the finest performances of her career. Kruger plays Katja, a passionate wife and loving mother whose life falls apart when her husband and young son are killed in a terrorist bombing. Katja struggles with her profound grief, and with a slow-moving investigation that only belatedly identifies the Neo-Nazi perpetrators. When details later emerge in trial that threaten a guilty verdict, Katja resolves to get justice by any means necessary. Directed by acclaimed Turkish-German filmmaker Fatih Akin (Head-On), In the Fade is powered by Kruger’s harrowing, career-defining performance.
