Within the Whirlwind is a 2009 film directed by Marleen Gorris and based on the book by Eugenia Ginzburg. It stars Emily Watson and Pam Ferris. Watson has described the film as "the most stretching thing I've done as a mature actress." During Stalin's reign of terror, Evgenia Ginzburg, a literature professor, was sent to 10 years hard labor in a gulag in Siberia. Having lost everything, and no longer wishing to live, she meets the camp doctor and begins to come back to life.
