Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen and Kelly Macdonald lead John Madden’s Operation Mincemeat, about the stranger-than-fiction story of the bizarre and critical military deception that arguably helped the Allies liberate wartime Sicily.
Based on Ben Macintyre’s bestselling book, it sets its scene in 1943, with the Allies determined to break Hitler’s grip on Europe and launch an all-out assault on occupied Sicily. Knowing they must misdirect the Nazis from their true intentions, two brilliant naval intelligence offers, Ewen Montagu (Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Macfadyen) conceive of a truly inspired, if potentially farcical plan to lead their foe astray.
Delivered by a fantastic ensemble cast including Johnny Flynn, Penelope Wilton, Jason Isaacs, the late Paul Ritter, and Simon Russell Beale, with a script by Michelle Ashford fusing moments of drama, romance and pure intrigue, Operation Mincemeat promises to be a richly satisfying take on an incredible true story of WWII espionage.
