Deep in thought over 'Hannah Arendt'

How does one make a movie about thought?

That was the dilemma noted German director Margarethe von Trotta faced when she began work on her latest film, "Hannah Arendt," which opened June 7.

The biopic reunites Von Trotta with actress Barbara Sukowa, who starred in five of the director's previous films, including two biographies on strong, fearless women: 1986's "Rosa Luxemburg," which focused on the early 20th century political activist who was executed in Berlin in 1919, and 2009's "Vision," which depicted the life of the 12th century Benedictine nun Hildegard of Bingen.
