Operation Mincemeat (12A)

Friday, May 6

Friday 6th May 2022 – Thursday 12th May 2022

Dir. John Madden, UK, 2021, 128 mins. Cast. Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Penelope Wilton.

Based on Ben Macintyre’s bestselling book, Operation Mincemeat 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 officers, Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley conceive of a truly inspired, if potentially farcical plan to lead their foe astray – centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

This is the stranger-than-fiction story of the bizarre and critical military deception that arguably helped the Allies liberate wartime Sicily.
