defianceIn 1941, after the murders of their parents, the Bielski brothers (Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber, Jamie Bell) hide in a forest in Belarus where they organize shelter for other Jews, and an armed resistance movement.Ā In the past, Edward Zwick has shown a knack for portraying exciting historical chapters; this one is pretty standard but remains compelling throughout. At the center is a classic conflict between siblings that mirrors differing attitudes to how an enemy should be fought. Craig is good as the severely tested leader of the shelter, and the film is well staged with beautiful wintry cinematography contrasting the suffering.
