That's So Money
Caught the excellent Oscar winning (as of Sunday night) movie "The Counterfeiters" Monday night.
From Austria, it's about a Nazi plot near the end of WWII to forge enough British pounds and U.S. dollars to cause the collapse of both economies -- using concentration camp prisoners to do the forgery.
The prisoners faced the dilemma of helping the Nazis in exchange for "better" treatment and life itself.
The movie does an amazing job of forcing the audience to consider which impossible choice they would make.
