Closer to The Moon

Closer to The Moon

"A breath of fresh air, far above the usual action films Hollywood keeps churning out." - New York Observer

Disillusioned with the state of post-war Communist Romania, five Jews who fought in the resistance against the Nazis stage an elaborate bank heist by convincing everyone at the scene of the crime that they are filming a movie. Knowing their punishment will be severe, the five decide that win or lose, any fate is better than their current one. But none of them can guess what actually awaits them. Funny, exciting and based on an incredible true story, Closer to the Moon stars stars Vera Farmiga (The Departed) and Mark Strong (The Imitation Game).
