Directed by Eric Warin and Tahir Rana, 2021’s Charlotte is an animated drama that tells the true story of Charlotte Salomon (Keira Knightley, Colette), a young German-Jewish painter who comes of age in Berlin on the eve of the Second World War.

Fiercely imaginative and deeply gifted, Charlotte dreams of becoming an artist. Her first love applauds her talent, which emboldens her resolve. But the world around her is changing quickly and dangerously, limiting her options and derailing her dream. When anti-Semitic policies inspire violent mobs, she leaves Berlin for the safety of the South of France. There she begins to paint again, and finds new love. But her work is interrupted, this time by a family tragedy that reveals an even darker secret. Believing that only the extraordinary will save her, she embarks on the monumental adventure of painting her life story.

Charlotte also features the voices of Brenda Blethyn, Jim Broadbent, Mark Strong and Helen McCrory.
