First Look: Terrence Malick's 'Radegund'

Terrence Malick is suddenly one of the busiest directors in Hollywood. He cut a few different versions of his galactic documentary “Voyage Of Time,” he’s got the long brewing “Song To Song” (formerly known as “Weightless“) set to premiere at SXSW and hit cinemas next month, and if that’s not enough, he’s now in post-production on “Radegund.” Even more, the first look has arrived.

Starring August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Matthias Schoenaerts, Bruno Ganz, Martin Wuttke, Maria Simon, Karin Neuhäuser, and Alexander Fehling, the WWII movie tells the true story of Austrian conscientious objector Franz Jägerstätter. Here’s the official synopsis:

Opening at Jägerstätter’s home in the idyllic Austrian countryside, the film follows Franz and his wife, Fani, along their path of resistance. Told through real wartime letters, this love story finds the couple in conflict with the members of their close-knit town, their church, their government, and even their friends — all of which brings them to a dramatic choice.

“Radegund” is expected to open in cinemas this year. [Variety]Radegund
