Miracle at Midnight

Ken Cameron's 1998 television film dramatizes one of the more heroic episodes of the Holocaust, the rescue of almost all of Denmark's Jews. A Danish doctor and his wife (Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow) save a friend and his family, while the doctor and his son help organize the Jews' escape to neutral Sweden. The moving story is rendered a bit false by a too calculated script, building suspense by introducing ever-larger impediments to the rescuers' plan; these thrill-a-minute machinations debase both the Holocaust and the courage of those involved in the rescue.
