War, Espionage UK 2021 2 hrs 8 mins
A strong ensemble cast brings you this unlikely but true WWII story of Naval intelligence convincing the Germans that the Allies intended to invade Greece and Sardinia rather than Sicily. Colin Firth leads and is as dependable as ever, but even better is Matthew Macfadyen as the awkward and bookish Major Cholmondeley.
The film credits the ruse of floating a corpse with misleading papers to be found by the Germans off the coast of Spain to one Ian Fleming – who of course went on to create his own entirely fictional spy. Running through the story of deception are tales of love and loyalty, at an individual and governmental level.
