The real-life sisters will play on-screen sisters in the Melanie Laurent-directed story, which was adapted from the bestselling Kristin Hannah book.

Here’s a plot summary: “The Nightingale is set on the eve of World War II and follows the sisters’ struggle to survive and resist the German occupation of France. The story was inspired by the courageous women of the French Resistance who helped downed Allied airmen escape Nazi-occupied territory and hid Jewish children.”
