Based on actual events. In 1978, an East German couple, traveling with their child, used a toy guy to hijack an airliner to a U.S. base in West Germany. Now they must stand trial in a potentially explosive fight for their freedom. Taken from a real American judge's account of an unprecedented legal action in the late '70s, Judgment In Berlin is fascinating stuff if you're at all interested in international law, or simply want to appreciate the spectacle of Martin Sheen and Sam Wanamaker - as judge and defence attorney - playing articulate, learned, impassioned, justice-seeking windbags.
