based on a true story
(I bought the book after seeing the movie - it seems that a lot was condensed and the movie's drama was enhanced) Daniel Craig plays the older brother.
The setting is 1941 Bellorussia - near Latvia, Poland, Ukraine. The Germans are coming and the Jews' lives are in danger.
Four brothers see that their parents are killed and the farm destroyed. They escape to the woods with no real plans for the future - it's October.
Over time, more and more Jews join them. They work together to create a settlement in the forest. The two older brothers differ in their approach - kill first and ask questions later or try to avoid conflicts and develop a viable community. So they split off, the more beligerant one joining the Soviet soldiers in another area of the forest.
I wept... a lot.
Then bought the book to discover how different the movie is.
