In the political drama Good Morning, Night
, young Communist anarchists kidnap a government official, argue politics with him, then put him on trial. The film is based on events from 1978, when the Red Brigade stashed Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in a hidden room of a member's house, from which Moro wrote letters while his captors negotiated his release. Like the similarly titled Good Night, and Good Luck
, Good Morning, Night
uses actual news footage to lend the story more authenticity. Be warned, though; the film assumes that audiences know the outcome of the ordeal and leaves the ending vague. You'll have to do a Google search if you're too young to remember. Nevertheless, the movie is a sharp, thoughtful chronicle of semi-conscientious terrorists at the tipping point.
