Based on an extraordinary true story, Defiance is an epic tale of family, honour, vengeances and salvation in World War II. The year is 1941 and the Jews of Eastern Europe are being massacred by the thousands. Managing to escape certain death, three brothers take refuge in the dense surrounding woods they have known since childhood. There they begin their desperate battle against the Nazis. Daniel Craig, Live Schreiber and Jamie Bell star as brothers who turn a primitive struggle to survive into something far more consequential- a way to avenge the deaths of their loved ones by saving thousands of others.
An inspiring, engrossing story that has previously never been told, Defiance boasts an all-star cast, giving compelling performances that will have you thinking about this brave survival story, long after the final credits roll.
"It's handsome looking, performances are strong and it really is fascinating."- ABC Radio National.
Review: Daniel Craig & Live Schreiber provide strong performances. Although a little long, Defiance is an important honest portrayal of Bielski brothers.
