Didn't had the opportunity to check "Defiance" until now, and I got to say this is a very good film. The film tells us the true story of a group of jewish brothers who built a community in the middle of the Belorussian forest while Nazis occupied the territory. The story by Edward Zwick is pretty good and really shows us the ups and downs of their journey. Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber do a pretty good job in their roles too. Overall an entertaining film, not at the level of biographical films like "Valkyrie" and "Schindler's List" but still very entertaining.
