“Charlotte” had its world premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and is now receiving a limited release starting this weekend in New York, Los Angeles, and Canada before slowly rolling out to other markets. The film tells the true story of artist Charlotte Salomon, a German-Jewish artist born in Berlin who hid from the Nazis during World War II before being tragically murdered at Auschwitz in 1943. Years later, her paintings gained international recognition, and now her story is being told in animation form by directors Eric Warin and Tahir Rana. Academy Award-nominee Keira Knightley (“The Imitation Game”) provides the vocal performance for Charlotte, infusing her with grace, intelligence and warmth. Knightley was kind enough to talk with us about her work on the film, her thoughts on the true story, its subject, and more. Please take a listen down below and enjoy!
