‘Valkyrie’

 

Tom Cruise stars as Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the German army officer who in 1944 joined a conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Running time/rating: 2:00; rated PG-13 for violence and brief strong language.

What they’re saying: “In a compact performance of nerve and rare glimpses of emotion, Cruise is a leading man who takes us through a complex story, and ennobles and personalizes events that have now almost faded into history.” – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
