TAKEN AT MIDNIGHT by Mark Hayhurst, directed by Michael Fera. Germany, 1931. Lawyer Hans Litten is famed for the brilliance with which he defends opponents of the Nazi movement. When he calls Adolf Hitler as the star witness in the trial of a band of murderous Nazi paramilitaries, the politician feels the full force of Litten's intellect, wit and courage. Two years later, Hans is arrested, held without trial, and tortured, leaving his indomitable mother to confront his captors at enormous personal risk. Taken At Midnight examines the life of the celebrated lawyer, his cross-examination of Hitler in court in 1931, and his courageous mother's attempts to secure his release after his arrest by the Nazis in 1933.
