Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber, Jamie Bell, and Alexa Davalos star in this World War II movie based on the remarkable true story of the Bielski partisans. In 1941, Jewish brothers band together in the Belarussian forest, taking up arms against Axis forces and rescuing some 1,000 Jewish refugees. "Defiance presents itself as an explicit correction of the cultural record, a counterpoint to all those lachrymose World War II tales of helplessness and victimhood" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times). Based on a book by Nechama Tec. Letterboxed.
