Premiering tonight at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival is Return to the Hiding Place, an award-winning faith-based World War II true-life drama about a family risking their lives to save their community from Nazi invasion, starring emerging actress Mimi Sagadin and Lord of the Rings actor John Rhys-Davies.
Sagadin stars as the well-known Dutch hero of the Holocaust, Corrie ten Boom alongside renowned Emmy-nominated Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones) who plays Eusi, a rabbi from Amsterdam, who Corrie ten Boom aids in hiding from the Gestapo lead Nazi Party. “This film is critical for our culture today…I’m so proud to be involved in this picture” states Sagadin’s co-star Rhys Davies about the festival winning film. Corrie ten Boom’s personal assistant Pam Rosewell Moore commented “I felt like I was with Corrie all over again…” after seeing Sagadin’s portrayal of her friend.
Editor’s note: I’ve seen this film and plan to purchase a copy as soon as it’s available. Excellently done. A great family film.
