A Hidden Life
This historical drama features the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer and devout Catholic whose idyllic life is shattered when he becomes a conscientious objector during World War II. The Nazi Party charges Jägerstätter with treason, whisking him away to a remote holding facility. Ripped from his family and faced with the threat of execution, Jägerstätter undergoes a crisis of faith, embarking on a tumultuous moral journey. Interweaving vibrant cinematography with haunting orchestration, Terrence Malick’s triumphant follow-up to Tree of Life is a poignant rumination on faith, humanity, and compassion.
