I recently went to see "Defiance" with Eric, and I'm not quite sure what I expected, and am still unclear if I liked the movie.
I am so used to the sexy Mr. Bond image that it was very hard for me to wrap my head around him as the leader of forest Jewish community. This story was one I had never heard of before, and always related the tales of the Holocaust with 'The Diary of Anne Frank' and 'Schindler's List.'
It takes place in Belarussian forest with the Nazis advancing on one side, while the Russians are on the other. My heart ached for this family, and community, to survive each time they were attacked and forced to relocate & rebuild.
This is based on a true story, and while I would recommend seeing this lesser known perspective, you won't be missing anything if you wait for it to come out on DVD.
Hey, It's Okay
