You all loved the big screen adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's War Horse, and now another of his books has been adapted and is ready to hit cinemas. WAITING FOR ANYA will arrive into British cinemas next Valentines and has been sold for Northern America too. The World War II tale has a rather strong cast led by Anjelica Huston, Jean Reno, Thomas Kretschmann, Sadie Frost. The story revolves around Jo Lalande (Noah Schnapp), a 13 year old shepherd, and a widow, Horcada (Anjelica Huston), who help smuggle Jewish children across the border from southern France into Spain during the war. Ben Cookson both wrote and directed the movie.
