City of Thieves
Set during the Nazis’ brutal siege of Leningrad, two cellmates are given an impossible task – to secure a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel’s daughter’s wedding cake. Lev and Kolya journey through the dire lawlessness of Leningrad and enemy lines to find the impossible. An intimate coming-of-age story with an utterly contemporary feel for men, City of Thieves is a gripping, cinematic World War II adventure.
