DEFIANCE is a different kind of World War II movie, one that looks at the Holocaust from a unique angle--telling the true story of a group of Jews in Eastern Europe who fought back. On the run from the Germans and the local police, the three Russian Bielski brothers--Tuvia (Daniel Craig), Zus (Liev Schreiber), and Asael (Jamie Bell)--hide out deep in the forest. Their numbers swell as more and more refugees join them, coming together to form a community while also patrolling with guns and shooting the enemy to stay alive. But Tuvia and Zus have a falling-out over what future direction to take: Tuvia thinks it best to remain in the forest despite the coming vicious winter, but Zus wants to join the Russian resistance, which is aggressively attacking the Nazis. Complicating the situation are the women in their lives, known as forest wives--Lilka (Alexa Davalos) shows interest in Tuvia, Bella (Iben Hjelje) grows close to Zus, and young Chaya (Mia Wasikowska) and Asael flirt with the tingles of first love. As food grows scarce, diseases increase, and the Nazis become determined to find and kill them, the Bielski Otriad struggles to survive, battling back when necessary, including taking up arms. <br /> <br />Directed by Edward Zwick (GLORY, BLOOD DIAMOND) and based on the nonfiction book by Dr. Nechama Tec, DEFIANCE is a powerful thriller filled with tense human emotion, a gripping story about brotherly love and the basic human instinct to survive against all odds. Craig (LAYER CAKE, CASINO ROYALE), Schreiber (EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED), and Bell (BILLY ELLIOTT) are terrific as the Bielski brothers, three very different individuals who simply refuse to just lie down and die.

SUPERB

I usually start a movie late at night to put me to sleep so it typically takes me a few nights to finish a movie. This movie kept me up. I had to see the end. This was based on actually events. This movie was horrific, inspirational and action packed. I was not expecting much at such a low price but this was worth every penny and more.

Helpful with history

This is a great movie about the Bielsky brothers and their will to fight back and defy the odds of survival. I did not know anything about this historical chain of events until seeing it in the theater. I applaud the brothers and stand WITH them and their will to fight back and defy tyranny, almost like what I see us doing here in America. A must see for ANYBODY and a true inspirational story.

A must see movie

This is a fantastic true story of how some of the Jews managed to survive during WWII. Had it not been for the courage of these three brothers many more would have died.

very intertaining

this movie shows a part of world war II that is usually over-looked by historians i would guess that there are many more such occurence's that are never known.
Wonderful movie and the people at Walmart were very helpful!!!!! I would order online again...Thanks!
