Netflix great movie: Defiance

With Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber.  It’s a true story about 4 brothers that saved over 1,000 Jews by keeping them moving through the forests of Belarus during WWII. Lots of action and edge of your seat pace through most of it.  Great watch!

    My son liked that one. I explained it to him a little so he'd know it was a real thing.

    I can’t believe I missed it when it came out.  I love historical war movies.

    Wife and I watched it when it came out.  Very powerful and well done!

    Movies based on real stories are always of interest to me.  This one in particular was a great illustration on how folks handle a complete collapse of law and how the lines split within a country during the occupation by the Nazis.  Justice was swift and brutal without much of a worry about repercussions.  Makes you think about how you would have fared in such a place/time.

    You got the Internet/Cable anything...... you can get NetFlix. I use a Roku 'Router' little box that comes with a remote and you can access a bunch of different  providers from the menu.

    I have the DVD of that movie. It's really good. Need to dig it out and watch it again.
