"A Hidden Life feels stunningly relevant"- Variety 

Terrence Malick, director of the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winning Tree of Life, makes a triumphant return to form in this epic, spiritual journey of quiet unsung heroism based on a true story during World War II.

Based on real events, Franz Jägerstätter, (August Diehl, Inglorious Basterds) is an Austrian farmer, husband and father, pious Christian and respected member of his community. His Edenic lifestyle is brought down around him when war breaks out across Europe and Nazi ideology spreads, with his church and his community spouting antisemitic dogma. Franz refuses to swear allegiance to Hitler, becoming a conscientious objector when called up for conscription, a decision that will stretch his belief to the limit.

Malick delivers at once a meditative, masterful exploration of humanity and the power of belief, and the consequences of upholding one’s convictions during a time of terrifying upheaval. SWIFF audiences will be among the first in the country to experience Malick's new masterpiece on the big screen.
