“The Zookeeper’s Wife,” out Tuesday, is the latest movie to recount the unimaginable evils committed during World War II. Antonina and Jan Zabinski, owners of the Warsaw Zoo in 1939, dealt with the Germans who occupied their country. The couple not only found a way to stay alive but also managed to convert their zoo into a hiding place for Jews escaping the country. Jessica Chastain’s performance as Antonina is what gives the film so much heart. She received Oscar nominations for “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Help,” but her work here is better.
