  • Cast: Friedrich Mücke, Karoline Schuch, David Kross

Peter Strelzyk (Mücke), his wife Doris (Schuch) and their two children attempt to escape East Germany in a hand-sewn hot air balloon. Herbig adopts an old-fashioned, slightly sentimental approach but it’s an engrossing mixture of adventure yarn and methodical police procedural, with moments of pulse-racing tension.

Katherine (Thompson) is a seasoned talk show host who, when forced to hire new writing staff, takes on former chemical plant employee Molly (Kaling). Kaling’s script is peppy, good-natured and has a good grasp of the issues, and Thompson has her best role in years. Piquant and winning.
