Inspired by true events during the 1942 Nazi occupation of Poland,
LOVE GETS A ROOM is the story of a Jewish stage actress who must make the gut-wrenching decision to follow her heart or escape the Warsaw ghetto.
Told in real-time like Cortés’ critically-acclaimed BURIED, the film is a romantic tale of love and survival in the face of harrowing circumstances.

Written and Directed by: Rodrigo Cortés

Starring: Clara Rugaard (I Am Mother), Ferdia Walsh-Peelo (CODA),
Mark Ryder (City on a Hill), Anastasia Hille (Snow White and the Huntsman),
Magnus Krepper (A Cure for Wellness), and Henry Goodman (The New Pope)

Set in the heart of 1942 Warsaw, where Jews and refugees from across Poland were imprisoned in a ghetto and cut off from the outside world by a towering wall, LOVE GETS A ROOM follows Stefcia and her fellow Jewish theatre actors as they fight to keep their passion for performing alive.

As life in the Nazi-occupied ghetto became a fierce fight against cold, hunger, and epidemics, the actors, against all odds, embark on a daring mission to stage Jerzy Jurandot’s play, risking their lives to create something beautiful in a world of chaos and destruction.

Written and directed by visionary filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés, the film takes you on an emotional journey back to the tumultuous time of World War II. With masterful direction and outstanding performances, LOVE GETS A ROOM is a poignant exploration of the power of love, hope, and sacrifice in the face of unimaginable adversity.
