Czechoslovakia, 1930s. Liesel and her Jewish industrialist husband Viktor build a modernist family home, an architectural masterpiece representing a bright future. That future, however, doesn’t materialise: as the Nazis occupy the country, Liesel and her best friend Hana, who is, too, married to a Jewish man, have to sacrifice all they have to save their families. When they meet again, years later, the house, now the property of the Communist Party, is in ruins but their feelings for each other are as strong as ever. Based on the Man Booker-shortlisted novel of the same name and inspired by Mies van der Rohe-designed landmark Villa Tugendhat in Moravia, The Glass Room is a breathtakingly stylish and quietly transgressive drama.
