Based on real events, from visionary writer-director Terrence Malick, A Hidden Life 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 keep his spirit alive.

Press:

"His perspective is one of exultant wonder, marvelling at the paradisiacal green grace of their valley, the metaphorical mist that hangs over the mountain and the soft earth at which Fani and her three daughters claw for answers." ★★★★ - The Guardian

"It’s one of the year’s best and most distinctive movies." ★★★★★ - Roger Ebert
