The Winter Gift

Synopsis

‚Äč

Berlin, 1928 -  a fun-loving young American actress and a classically-trained German director come together to make a classic of the silent screen.

New York, 1955-  in a slum tenement, a solitary, penniless, forgotten movie star sits drinking herself to death. One day there’s a knock at the door, and it isn’t the rent collector. Someone has found Louise Brooks…

Based as closely as possible upon the memoirs and factual records of those concerned, THE WINTER GIFT tells the story of how G.W. Pabst, Louise Brooks, Marlene Dietrich and a host of others came to make PANDORA’S BOX… and what happened afterwards…
