1ST ONE LIFE TRAILER
FROM ANTHONY HOPKINS HOLOCAUST MOVIE DRAMA
Toronto Film Festival is getting closer and closer each day and getting a world premiere at the prestige festival is ONE LIFE movie drama which tells the true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London banker (played by Johnny Flynn) who, on the eve of World War II, saved 669 children from the Nazis – more than the number of children who survived the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia. With war fast approaching, Winton visited a recently annexed Prague and witnessed first-hand Jewish refugee families with little to no shelter and food. He immediately realized it was a race against time to see how many children he and his friends could rescue before time ran out. Fifty years later, in 1988, Winton (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until a live television show “That’s Life” surprises him with the surviving children – now adults – seated all around him that he can finally make peace with the loss he had carried for five decades. Helena Bonham Carter plays Winton’s mother, with Jonathan Pryce, Lena Olin, Romola Garai and Alex Sharp also in the cast. Check out the first trailer below, for the film that is out January 1st in UK cinemas.
