They weren’t supposed to survive the Nazi invasions, let alone the Holocaust, but somehow they did. In Defiance, Daniel Craig (007), Liev Schreiber (the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Jamie Bell (King Kong) play the Bielski brothers. These Russian Jews saved their people the best way they knew how: by fighting back against Hitler’s army. Defiance is a stunning story of survival, vengeance and community.

Grade: B
