Plot

During IIWW in 1943 the Allies are determined to launch an all-out assault on Fortress Europe. But they face an impossible challenge – to protect a massive invasion force from entrenched German firepower and avert a potential massacre. It falls to two brilliant intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley, to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war – a lunatic and dangerously precarious undertaking centered on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man… A “stranger than fiction” true story based on Ben Macintyre’s bestselling book.

Movie Revies

A far more decorous affair than its macho-burger title would suggest, this is a classy production with a first-rate ensemble cast, splicing the story’s intrigue with a poignant vein of melodrama.

David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter

There’s something fascinating about a plan that is truly so ridiculous it just might work, and the no-nonsense performances of this capable cast do a great job at allowing us to believe them in these roles.
