Small Resistance Matters in First Trailer for Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life

This morning brings the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s latest, A Hidden Life, showing off a gorgeous looking film with plenty of heart. 

Though it’s already been making waves on the festival circuit, the rest of the world is getting the first look at Malick’s A Hidden Life, which just looks absolutely stunning:

Considering the state of things these days, A Hidden Life‘s story feels more timely than ever, and the subtle drama at play in the trailer makes me eager to sit down with this one…even though it’s likely to wreck me.

Based on real events, A HIDDEN LIFE is the story of an unsung hero, 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 hits theaters on December 13, 2019.
