I cancelled my trip to Chicago, as plans finalized to shoot 3 videos for The Score Group with some magazine stills included in the bundle. I am always amazed how they want to make me look different than I do everyday and different from each shoot. Good times. I have one more to do on Friday. I am looking forward to it. The photographer and make up artist are very wonderful to work with.
Caught on my camera for the Gentleman who gifted me the lingerie. Thank you so much. I felt very pretty.
I liked it. It is a nice little film that makes you think about the value of life, animal and human. It isn’t the most brutal or cut-throat protrayal of the Holocaust but it does tell of the real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of “Captain America: Civil War”). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
I found the opening scenes of everyday life and Antonia’s relationship with the animals heart warming. This is a warm, loving zoo. To see what happens to these animals is heartbreaking. That is only the beginning, as the Jews in Warsaw are moved to the ghetto and they are next.
Antonina Żabińska and Dr. Jan Żabiński saved 300 people. They are heros. I enjoyed knowing about them.
