A Hidden Life
with August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Bruno Ganz, Matthias Schoenaerts. Running time 173 minutes + trailers.
New from visionary writer-director Terrence Malick (Days from Heaven, The Tree of Life) is this reverent, moving biopic of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter; an Austrian conscientious objector in World War II. Shot through with Malick’s trademark lyricism, it begins in rural Austria, where Jägerstätter (August Diehl) tends the land with his wife (Valerie Pachner) and delights in their three daughters before – repulsed by rising Nazi ideology as the Third Reich come to power – his refusal to swear allegiance to Hitler sees him face a terrifying fate.
