Operation Mincemeat (Cert 12A)  

Dir John Madden         UK 2022           128 mins

Based on the best-seller by Ben MacIntyre and brought to the big screen by Oscar-winning director John Madden, Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary and true story of the most successful wartime deception ever attempted, and one that changed the course of World War II. 

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 up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war which centres on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. 

Starring an all-British cast led by Colin Firth, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Penelope Wilton, Johnny Flynn, Jason Isaacs and Simon Russell Beale.
