A HIDDEN LIFE
2019, Fox Searchlight, 173 min, Germany/USA, Dir: Terrence Malick

Based on real events, visionary writer-director Terrence Malick’s A HIDDEN LIFE is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), 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 (Valerie Pachner) and children that keeps his spirit alive. “With his best film since THE TREE OF LIFE, Terrence Malick poses tough questions about personal faith in a world gone astray in this epic return to form.” – Peter DeBruge, Variety.
