Michael Caine and the late Glenda Jackson star in this inspirational retelling of a D-Day veteran’s remarkable exploit.

In the summer of 2014 – the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings – Bernie Jordan made headlines after staging a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on the beach in Normandy to commemorate their fallen comrades. With great chemistry between Caine and Jackson as Rene, Jordan’s spirited wife of 60 years, Oliver Parker’s (Swimming With Men, Dad’s Army) warm, bittersweet film salutes an adventure that captured the imagination of the world while exploring the lasting trauma of war.
