Celebrate the monumental life and legacy of Simone Veil, one of the most beloved Frenchwomen of all time whose extraordinary life is brought to the silver screen in this moving and monumental biopic from director Olivier Dahan (Academy Award-winning film La Vie en Rose). A Holocaust survivor who became President of the European Parliament, as well as a French magistrate and politician, Simone Veil's dramatic life perfectly mirrored Europe’s 20th-century history – from near destruction to prosperity and peace. In this epic, star-studded biopic starring Elsa Zylberstein, Simone Veil, Woman of the Century offers a captivating and epic portrait of a singular woman whose tragic war experience instilled in her the desire to challenge, transform, and make the world a better, more humane, and just place.
