In the late '30s, Austrian farmer Franz Jgersttter (August Diehl)-devout Catholic, avowed anti-Nazi, conscientious objector-began burning through his draft deferments to stay with his wife (Valerie Pachner) and children as Hitler's armies marched. When finally ordered to report, he'd bravely stand by his convictions... knowing they'd mean prison and worse. Terrence Malick's sobering fact-inspired epic also stars Jrgen Prochnow, Bruno Ganz, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Nyqvist. 174 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
