(Paramount)
Starring: Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber
Defiance proves that sometimes it’s the true stories that turn out to be the most incredible. Director Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Glory) brings to life the astonishing heroics of the Bielski brothers — played by Craig (you’ll forget about Bond in the first five minutes), Schreiber and Jamie Bell — a three-man Jewish resistance who hid in the forests of Belarus during World War II, fighting off the Nazis and saving more than 1,200 Jewish lives. It’s an emotional and inspirational tale.
