Director Terrence Malick returns with the moving and spiritual “A Hidden Life”
The film, which makes its Canadian premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, stars actor August Diehl as a real life Austrian conscientious objector during WWII who refuses to fight for the Nazis.
In the first trailer for the film, Diehl’s Franz Jägerstätter faces the dilemma between standing by his religious values and serving his country.
“A Hidden Life” also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Maria Simon, Tobias Moretti, Karin Neuhauser, Ulrich Mathes and the late Bruno Ganz.
The 3-hour epic first premiered at Cannes earlier this year, and is set for release Dec. 13.
