Defiance

My husband and I watched this movie last night (and the night before, as it is over 2 hours long). It is based on a true story about a family of brothers (4) who saved over 1,000 Jewish people during WWII. They hid in the woods of Germany. This was so interesting, I love reading and watching things from this era of time. So amazing that this was only 60 years ago. It's not a movie for kids, as it shows some real sad, sad things, of course. It has a great parallel to Moses and if you like movies about the Holocaust, you will love this one.

  1. I remember seeing a commercial for this...it looked so compelling. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Did you ever see I Am David? Also from that era and a real tear jerker.

  7. Thief? I'll check it out!

    Now, I have to clarify, things happen that are very sad, things like survival things, human nature in such desparate times...but I liked it because I think the movie shows how it was.

  9. Thanks for the recommendation, Jamie! I will put this in my queue (and maybe I Am David, too, from the comments).

  10. I'll second I Am David - both my hubby and I really liked it. I haven't seen any previews for Defiance, but in general I like this type of movie. I'll have to add it to our queue, as well.

  11. Barbara- I recently read the Book Thief! A very interesting read. I am also currently reading, "Those Who Save Us," also about Nazi Germany...although, I am not sure about endorsing it because of some of the disturbing things in it...

    The movie looks compelling. Thanks, Jamie!
