Taylor Swift stars in Amsterdam, the ultimate World War One movie to see
In the recently released film Amsterdam, Christian Bale, John David Washington, and Margot Robbie portray the roles of former friends who get back together after some time apart and find themselves accused of murder.
The plot to assassinate Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s serves as the basis for the new movie directed by David O. Russell, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his work and will make its debut in theaters on Friday.
In an interview, Bale described the film’s inspiration as being “based on genuine occurrences that are jaw-dropping.”
“The core of it is this very sincere, heartfelt choice of how to live your life in the face of evil, basically, and how to maintain optimism and joy throughout,” he added.

After some time has passed, the trio is brought back together when a senator’s daughter, portrayed by pop star Taylor Swift, asks them for assistance in finding out who killed her father.

De Niro stated that he believed the movie had relevance to the political atmosphere in the United States at the present time.
“I never truly imagined as a young man that things like the Holocaust, the Second World War, Hitler, Nazism all that, I thought that was a nightmare that would never ever be repeated – ever,” De Niro said. “I thought that was a nightmare that would never ever be repeated – ever.”
