A Hidden Life

The quietest acts of resistance are what save civilization.


A Hidden Life
Based on real events, this is the story of an unsung hero, the conscientious objector 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 and children that keeps his spirit alive.

Tomatometer quote iconAmbitious and visually absorbing, A Hidden Life may prove inscrutable to non-devotees -- but for viewers on Malick’s wavelength, it should only further confirm his genius.
