Colin Firth cast as lead in Benjamin’s Crossing

16 May 2017 6:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Colin Firth has just been cast in the lead role in Pat O’Connor’s Benjamin’s Crossing. Per Deadline, the film is based on the true story of Walter Benjamin, a Jewish philosopher who escaped Nazi Germany by crossing the Pyrenees Mountains in 1940. It will be based on the novel of the same name by Jay Parini.

This is the second time Firth and O’Connor have worked together; O’Connor directed the King’s Speech actor in  the 1987 film A Month in the Country.

The film begins in 1940 as “Benjamin finds himself forced to flee his home in Paris on the heels of the Nazi invasion. With nowhere else to turn, he meets Lisa Fittko, who is helping refugees escape to Spain through the Pyrenees. Despite his weak physical condition, Lisa reluctantly agrees to bring him along, leading an unlikely group of refugees on a daring adventure that will change their lives forever. »
