Ben Foster is superb even if there will be comparisons to Robert De Niro’s fete of gaining and losing 60 pounds for the part of a boxer. This is a harrowing holocaust story in the Sophie’s Choice vein about choices made to survive. Because the film jumps back and forth between time frames, the power of the story is diluted. Still, this is one of Barry Levinson’s better films.
