Synopsis

You might not like Danny Balint - in fact, you might despise him. But a couple of details about him might surprise you. He's a young American skinhead whose embrace of the ugly creed of neo-Nazism conceals two things - firstly, that he's highly intelligent, and secondly, and even more shockingly, that he's Jewish. Despite his own ancestry, the obsessive and angry Danny has latched onto racism as a way to make sense of the world - and the powerful Believer follows him as he tries to reconcile his prejudice and hatred with being the actual object of that hatred. With an amazing performance from Ryan Gosling as Danny, this is a fierce and unforgettable movie.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
