I was at the video store the other night, trying to find some movies to rent for a sleepover that my daughters were having. I looked through all of the new releases, and just thought that it was SO INTERESTING that the only movie that was completely sold out was 'Defiance' with Daniel Craig. They had dozens and dozens of copies in inventory with a sizable display - all rented out for the week. I hadn't even heard of it - but I have to tell you it looks like a good one.
It's about 3 brothers in Eastern Europe during WWII - and it's based on a true story. The brothers escape the Nazis by disappearing into the woods, where they eventually assembled quite a group of like minded individuals willing to resist the Nazi terror. They end up protecting a sizable group of Polish Jews who are fleeing the slaughter.
Is it just me, or do you also think the fact that this movie is completely sold out could be a measure of the mindset of the American people?
When I rent it and watch it - I'll let you know if I like it.
There is information and reviews at Fandango Movie Review. (I haven't even read the review at this site - I hardly EVER read movie reviews.)
