What’s New On Disney+ | A Small Light (US/UK/IE/AU/NZ)
It’s Tuesday, and Disney+ subscribers worldwide, including in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland, have the final two episodes of the new drama series, “A Small Light”, to enjoy. The new episodes are also available on Hulu.
Based on an inspiring true story, Miep Gies (Bel Powley) was young, carefree and opinionated — at a time when opinions got you killed ― when Otto Frank (Liev Schreiber) asked her to help hide his family from the Nazis during WWII. Without hesitation, Miep agreed. For the next two years, she and her daring and devoted husband, Jan (Joe Cole), with several other everyday heroes, watched over the Frank, van Pels and Pfeffer families hiding in the secret annex.
Told with a modern sensibility, “A Small Light” shakes the cobwebs off history and makes Miep’s story feel relevant, forcing audiences to ask themselves what they would have done in Miep’s shoes; and in modern times, asking if they would have the courage to stand up to hatred. Some stood by; Miep stood up.
Here are some details on these episodes:
Episode 7 – What Can Be Saved
Miep and Jan’s worst fear comes true when the Nazis raid The Annex. Refusing to lose hope, Miep is determined to save the Franks and others at any cost, even if it means confronting the enemy head-on.
Episode 8 – Legacy
With the end of the war in sight, Miep fights to keep Otto’s business running, hoping the Franks will return home. After the Allies liberate Amsterdam, Miep and Jan dedicate themselves to finding the Franks and the other Jewish residents of The Annex.
