Austrian farmer Franz Jägerstätter refuses to fight in the German army or swear an oath of allegiance to Hitler in WWII. Directed by Terrence Malick, based on a true story.

The title is taken from the end of Middlemarch by George Eliot, presented onscreen at the end of the film:
...the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

This was my first Malick movie so perhaps I'm just awed by the wide-angle shots, but I loved this. Beautiful and terrible.
