Marcel Marceau (born Marcel Mangel) is remembered as the legendary mime artist and actor, who entertained millions of people all over the world. But the Jewish-French performer’s most important role was chosen by him before he was famous: Joining the French Jewish Resistance during the war, Marceau helped save the lives of thousands of Jewish children. Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Clémence Poésy, Resistance tells an incredibly inspiring story of courage – the courage to both save lives and find reasons to laugh amidst unimaginable horror.
