I am not a fan of Jessica Chastain. I have found myself annoyed by her in every film except for "Interstellar", "Crimson Peak", and "Miss Sloane". This isn't an exception. Her accent drops in and out, and I didn't think that her emotion was very believable. I do like Daniel Brühl, and he was good, but I am afraid that he is starting to get a little typecast. This is one of many times that he has played the "Evil Nazi", but I actually like him in the other roles that he plays even more. The rest of the supporting cast has its ups and downs. I don't think that many of them were really able to emulate the terror or sadness that one would expect someone in that situation would have.
Ultimately, "The Zookeeper's Wife" had some interesting moments and started with potential, but it just isn't notable enough to warrant going to see in theaters unless if you are a diehard fan of the genre or the source material.
