A Hidden Life

Based on real events, this is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the Austrian peasant farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fani and children that keeps his spirit alive. From visionary writer-director Terrence Malick (Tree of LifeDays of Heaven). (PG-13, 180 mins)

“With ‘A Hidden Life’ and the story of Franz Jägerstätter, the director has found the ideal vehicle for his cosmic inquiries, and has created a film that is mournful, memorable and emotionally exhilarating.” – John Anderson, The Wall Street Journal

“‘A Hidden Life’ is a lucid and profoundly defiant portrait of faith in crisis.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

“Malick, a Christian philosopher-poet whose meanings can often be vague and elusive, seems to have been stung into an uncharacteristically blunt response, a forceful denunciation of the complicity of church and state.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
