Hubbs & I saw Defiance over the weekend with a friend. The movie tells the true story of two brothers who take to the woods after the German SS kills their parents. Slowely, more people begin joining them, until they form a whole community trying to survive out in the open. In some respects, it’s  very Robin Hood, as they often take supplies from those traveling in the forest or from nearby homes.

I thought this was a good blend of action (for the men) and romance/drama (for the women). The movie is bittersweet, sad at times, but overall an uplifting message of the human spirit’s capacity for survival in the worst of circumstances. If anything, it should make you think twice the next time your complaining about some minor inconvenience in your day. Because at least your not living in the woods being hunted like animals!

Also, I love Daniel Craig as James Bond, and he is equally good in this movie. The soundtrack is also very haunting and reminds me of Shindler’s List, with all the violins and such. I downloaded it from iTunes and have been listening to it all week.
