Critically acclaimed filmmaker Fatih Akin returns with IN THE FADE, a gripping, edge-of-your-seat contemporary thriller exploring the lengths one woman would go to seek retribution after a brutal terrorist attack. Inspired by shocking real-life events, the film tells the story of Katja, whose life is torn apart when her husband and young son are suddenly killed in a bomb attack. A police investigation points to a pair of young neo-Nazis as the key suspects, but when a lack of evidence fails to fully incriminate them, Katja is forced to take matters into her own hands and her hunt for justice begins to take increasingly dangerous and unexpected turns.
Winner of the Best Actress award at Cannes 2017, the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film and featuring a career-defining central performance from Kruger, In the Fade is a timely and all-too-urgent drama about a woman pushed to the edge as she desperately searches for the answers she believes to be out there.

“Diane Kruger carries entire scenes of witness testimonies through looks and grimaces alone. It’s a masterclass.” – Kevin Maher, The Times
