A Hidden Life

Starring: August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Michael Nyqvist, Bruno Ganz, Matthias Schoenaerts

Winner of the François Chalais Award at the Cannes Film Festival, this new film from legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick is being celebrated as his best film since his masterpiece The Tree of Life.

Based on real events, A Hidden Life is the story of 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.

  • Director: Terrence Malick
  • Runtime: 2 hours 53 minutes
  • Genre: Drama, History

“Malick’s masterpiece makes a great argument that it’s the little-known heroes, as opposed to the ones we trumpet as such, that truly form the ethical foundation upon which our society still creakily rests. Malick is a true cinematic maestro, conducting the orchestra of life. A Hidden Life is breathtaking in every aspect.”
