Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life set for December release
Fox Searchlight has announced Terrence Malick’s latest film, A Hidden Life, will arrive in theaters on December 13, just in time for awards season.
A Hidden Life stars August Diehl (Inglourious Basterds) as Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a devoted husband and father who refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II, even as the possibility of execution threatens to tear him apart from his family.
The film held its World Premiere in competition at the 72nd Festival de Cannes and reunites Malick with Searchlight following the Oscar-nominated Best Picture The Tree of Life, which won the festival’s Palme d’Or in 2011.
A Hidden Life also stars Valerie Pachner, Maria Simon, Bruno Ganz, Karin Neuhäuser, Tobias Moretti, Matthias Schoenaerts and Ulrich Matthes. The film is an Elizabeth Bay Production in association with Aceway and Studio Babelsberg and is produced by Grant Hill, p.g.a., Dario Bergesio, Josh Jeter and Elisabeth Bentley, with Marcus Loges and Adam Morgan serving as executive producers.
