Director Terrence Malick (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line) returns with A Hidden Life, the true life 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. 

“A Hidden Life is Terrence Malick at his best… and it’s a joy to have him back.” The Atlantic

A empty movie studio lot;

an ageing father, a raging brother;

a spaghetti junction of freeways;

Knight of Cups column 200

women he’s picked up;

women he cares for but can’t connect with;

his ex-wife, caring for the seriously ill;

pelicans;

dubious life lessons from Antonio Banderas at an exclusive pool party;

 

the Pacific Ocean;   the Mojave Desert;   Las Vegas…..

From these fragments of narrative and emotion, Malick and the brilliant cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki follow screenwriter Rick (Bale) through a personal crisis in “mesmerising” (Metro) style. Malick’s unique, perplexing and fascinating approach attracts an A-list cast and creates beautiful moments that live long in the memory.
