Official Selection, 2023 Toronto International Film Festival

Two-time Oscar winner Sir Anthony Hopkins plays Sir Nicholas Winton, who rescued 669 children from the Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia in the months leading up to World War II. Director James Hawes deftly jumps between the young Nicky as a mind-mannered young stock broker (played by Johnny Flynn) in a race against time to bring the Jewish child refugees to safety in England before the borders close, and Winton fifty years later (Hopkins), who lives haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to save. All this leads to a cathartic climax as he finally begins to come to terms with his memories of his heroic actions. This stirring drama also stars Helen Bonham Carter as Nicky’s mother Babette, who assists him in navigating the bureaucracies in England.
