Wallenberg: A Hero’s Story

It may be hard for some of today’s impatient audiences to sit back and let this story unfold at its leisurely pace, particularly when all the action seems designed to end just in time for a commercial break (that can happen when you watch a 30-year-old TV miniseries). The effort is worth it, though. Not only is the heroic tale of a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews from the Nazi’s well worth telling, but the cast, particularly Richard Chamberlain as Raoul Wallenberg, does such a fine job of bringing it all to life that even when the plot starts to plod in places, they still give you plenty to focus on.
