A Hidden Life

From visionary writer-director Terrence Malick and based on true events, Hidden Life is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl, The Counterfeiters, Inglourious Basterds), 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.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"It's at once a linear, almost classically structured drama and an exploratory, intensely romantic work of art."
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"...a lucid and profoundly defiant portrait of faith in crisis."
David Ehrlich, Indiewire
