A Hidden Life (12A) – 2019, USA, 174 mins
Director: Terrence Malick
Based on real events, A HIDDEN LIFE is the story of an unsung hero, Bl. 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.
“A Hidden Life may have been in the works for years, and it tells a story from nearly eight decades ago, but it is the work of an American filmmaker who is watching the state of the world. When Franz resists his neighbors’ pleas to make nice with the government, there’s a purpose. When he says Christ’s example will not let him swear fealty with his mouth and believe something else in his mind and heart, he is doing something that would seem daring today in the churches of America or Europe, in those places where to be Christian is construed to mean supporting a xenophobia Christ never would have stood for.”
– Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
