Episode #66: Schindler’s List
Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the sixty-sixth Best Picture Winner: “SCHINDLER’S LIST.”
“Schindler’s List” is based on the 1982 non-fiction novel “Schindler’s Ark” by Australian novelist Thomas Keneally. The film follows businessman Oskar Schindler who arrives in Krakow, Poland in 1939 ready to make his fortune from World War II, which has just started. After joining the Nazi party primarily for political expediency, he staffs his factory with Jewish workers for similarly pragmatic reasons. When the SS begins exterminating Jews in the Krakow ghetto, Schindler arranges to have his workers protected to keep his factory in operation, but soon realizes that in so doing, he is also saving innocent lives. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film stars Liam Neeson as Oskar Schindler, Ben Kingsley as Itzhak Stern, Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth, Caroline Goodall as Emilie Schindler, and Jonathan Sagall as Poldek Pfefferberg
