Description

Inspired by true events, The Colony tells the harrowing true story of Lena and Daniel, a young couple, who become entangled in a Chilean cult in 1973. When Daniel is brutally abducted by the military's secret police, Lena embarks on a desperate search for her boyfriend. She tracks him to Colonia Dignidad – an infamous compound run by a sinister preacher with an iron fist, Paul Schäfer. Offering herself up as a follower, Lena decides the only way she can free Daniel is to infiltrate the cult. But can she herself survive Colonia’s vicious regime?
Directed by Academy Award ® winner Florian Gallenberger, this powerful thriller is inspired by true events and stars Emma Watson (Harry Potter franchise), Daniel Brühl (Rush, Good Bye Lenin!) and Michael Nyqvist (The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, John Wick).

Good solid film - primariily a drama, acting was fair, script could have been much stronger and did not give the good actors enough to work with.

Must watch, amazing film

This film is so important to watch, refreshing to see such a relevant story based on the true events surrounding Colonia Dignidad. Was completely shocked to learn the colony still exists in Chile! I think Emma Watson brings her best performance yet. This is a an unexpected gem of a thriller!

Good thriller

This is a great thriller with really good tension throughout and strong performances from the leads. Great to see Emma Watson in her first adult role. Based on a true story, it is hard to believe this really happened - and you'll be on the edge of your seat at the end.

Had me on the edge of my seat!
