A Hidden Life (12A)
Dir: Terrence Malick
Cast: August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Michael Nyqvist
Ger/US, 2019, 174 mins, English, German and Italian dialogue with subtitles
A powerful drama based on the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian peasant farmer who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When he is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife and children that keeps his spirit alive. An intimate epic, in which visionary auteur Terrence Malick comes back to explore themes of faith versus religion and personal responsibility.
