Amsterdam is set in 1918 where Burt Berendsen (Christian Bale) is sent by his estranged wife’s parents to fight in World War I. While stationed in France, Burt meets and befriends African American soldier Harold Woodsman (John David Washington). After they sustain injuries in battle, Burt and Harold are nursed back to health by Valerie Voze (Margot Robbie), an eccentric nurse who makes art out of shrapnel removed from the soldiers, whom they befriend as well.

The three move to Amsterdam, where they live together and become close friends until Burt returns to New York City to be with his wife. Harold, who has fallen in love with Valerie and begun a tenuous romantic relationship with her, also leaves to go to New York and fulfil his own aspirations.

Fifteen years later, Burt has opened his own medical practice catering to veterans of the war, but still remains friends with Harold, who is now a lawyer. They have not heard from Valerie since they left Amsterdam. Harold asks Burt to perform an autopsy on Bill Meekins, a senator who appears to have a considerable amount of poison in this stomach…

The tangled web is woven.

Amsterdam is screening at the Ballina Fair cinema and Palace cinemas.
