Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat
Date: 20/09/2022 Times: 7:30 pm - 9:40 pm

Here’s a film with a bunch of your favourite British actors: Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Penelope Wilton, Jason Isaacs and Johnny Flynn. And the director is John Madden, who is responsible for some really top class award-winning British films: Mrs Brown, Shakespeare in Love and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It’s been described as a ‘well-rounded, satisfying movie which works on all levels’.

It’s 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe, and plan an all-out assault on Sicily; but they face an impossible challenge, how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre. It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen) to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war — centered on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to alter the course of the war — defying logic, risking countless thousands of lives, and testing the nerves of its creators to breaking point.
