As World War II unfolds in Berlin, so, too, does Charlotte’s passion for art. Loved ones and the city’s Academy of Fine Arts affirm her natural talent, but the Nazi influence grows stronger each day and ultimately upends her ambitious dreams. After danger arrives at her family’s doorstep, Charlotte’s parents urge her to leave Germany to care for her aging grandparents in the French Riviera. Miles from the war and just steps from the sea, Charlotte finds love and solace in her growing portfolio of artwork and freehand sketches of the world around her before a devastating tragedy strikes. Determined to outlive her family’s demons, Charlotte commits to recreating her entire life in paintings—retelling every painful and blissful memory—before it’s too late. Based on the remarkable true story of German-Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon, the animated drama CHARLOTTE is a poetic depiction of a woman’s resilience captured in her timeless body of artwork. Free-flowing and profound, Charlotte’s paintings reveal a beautifully complicated life in deeply troubled times. —A.B.
