“The Hiding Place” movie about Corrie ten Boom hits theaters in August. The movie is a filmed stage performance of the play based on the Christian Dutchwoman’s popular memoir.
“The Hiding Place” movie will be released on August 3 and 5 in select theaters in the United States and Canada. There will also be limited international screenings of the movie on August 16.
The Corrie ten Boom movie is based on real-life events that happened during World War II. The film’s official website describes what viewers can expect:
In the Netherlands, Corrie Ten Boom and her family risk everything to hide Jewish refugees by the hundreds and ultimately face the consequences when they are discovered.
World War II. Darkness has fallen over Europe, and the boots of the Third Reich echo through the streets. But on a quiet city corner in the Netherlands, some choose to resist. Corrie Ten Boom and her family risk everything to hide Jewish refugees by the hundreds, and they ultimately face the consequences when they are discovered.
“The Hiding Place” is their story—a story of faith, hope, love, and forgiveness in the face of unthinkable evil.
The filmed stage performance stars Nan Gurley as Corrie ten Boom, Carrie Tillis as Betsie ten Boom, and John Schuck as Casper ten Boom.
“The Hiding Place,” most popularly known as a book, was adapted as a stageplay by A.S. Peterson and directed by Matt Logan. The performance was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.
A cinematic production of “The Hiding Place” was released in 1975 and is available to watch with a free trial on Amazon. A 2014 related film, “Return to the Hiding Place,” also touches on ten Boom’s heroic actions. Viewers can also watch it for free with a Prime Video subscription. Fans of both films can buy them together on a single DVD for less than $20 (at the time of publication).
