Here is the plot summary: In June 1944, allied Forces stand on the brink: a million soldiers are secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he’ll be remembered as the architect of carnage.

Film About Olympian Swimmer and Syrian Refugee Yusra Mardini in the Works

17 March 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Yusra Mardini: Mardini’s Instagram account

In 2015, Yusra Mardini and her sister Sara saved themselves and the fellow refugees on their dinghy by jumping into the freezing Aegean Sea and swimming the boat to safety. The Mardini sisters had fled Syria and were en route to the Greek island of Lesbos when the dinghy began to sink. Mardini’s story came to light when she swam at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and now it’s getting the big screen treatment. Deadline reports that Working Title Films has acquired the rights to Mardini’s life story and is planning to develop it into a film.

According to the source, Stephen Daldry (“The Reader”) will direct the project, while Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce with Ali Jaafar (“The Idol”).

After surviving the journey from Syria, Yusra and Sara settled in Berlin. “Without any other family or friends, Mardini and Sara were forced to fend for themselves before Mardini met local swimming coach Sven Spannekrebs, who took her under his wing,” Deadline writes. “During the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, the [International Olympic Committee] launched for the first time ever a Team Refugee. Against the odds, Mardini made it to the Olympics and won her qualifying heat during the games. Since then, she’s become an impassioned champion and ambassador for refugees across the world.”

Since becoming an activist, Mardini has met with leaders like President Barack Obama and Pope Francis and delivered a series of keynote speeches at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

As xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments in the U.S. become more widespread and normalized, it’s vital that stories like Mardini’s are shared. The true story of a young woman trying to find a better life for herself and others, and becoming a hero along the way is inspiring in itself. But it’s especially important considering the United States’ shameful response — or lack thereof, really — to the refugee crisis. This film about Mardini has the potential to further galvanize the current resistance to Trumpian policy, inspire empathy in those who equate refugees with terrorism, and provide a much-needed wake-up call in the face to those who are indifferent or ignorant.

This certainly seems to be Daldry’s view: “I am thrilled to be involved in bringing Yusra’s extraordinary story to a wider audience through the medium of film,” he said. “Yusra reminds us of the human cost of the tragedy and the incredible fortitude, perseverance, and hope of one young woman who struggles for a future.”

“In a time of such uncertainty and fear, Yusra’s incredible story is a shining reminder that what binds us together is so much stronger than what keeps us apart,” Jaafar agreed. “At its heart, this is the story of someone who had a dream and was able to overcome the most immense obstacles to achieve it.”

Yusra Mardini will not be the first high-profile woman Daldry brings to the big screen. The director did the same with Virginia Woolf in “The Hours,” and Queen Elizabeth II in the play “The Audience” as well as the Netflix series “The Crown,” on which he serves as a producer. Daldry is set to direct the film adaptation of the musical “Wicked.” Here’s hoping the team behind the Mardini project taps a talented female scribe to write the screenplay.

Film About Olympian Swimmer and Syrian Refugee Yusra Mardini in the Works was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Stephen Daldry to Direct Olympian Refugee Swimming Movie

16 March 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stephen Daldry is developing a movie to direct for Working Title about refugee Yusra Mardini, the teenage swimmer who fled Syria and competed in last year’s Olympic Games.

Mardini, who’s now 18, and her sister Sarah left their hometown in 2015 after their house was destroyed in the Syrian Civil War. After reaching Turkey, they arranged to be smuggled into Greece by a boat, which began sinking after the motor stopped working. Mardini, her sister and two other people who were able to swim pushed the boat, which contained 14 other refugees, for more than three hours until it reached the island of Lesbos.

The women eventually settled in Berlin. Ysura was a member of the Refugee Olympic Athletes Team and competed in the 100-meter freestyle and the 100-meter butterfly.

Daldry and Eric Fellner, co-chair of Working Title Films, told the Daily Mail that they are seeking a screenwriter and will »

Mother nature, alongside man-made satellites, appears to be getting her revenge on a world that has been abused at the hands of humankind in a chillingly surreal teaser trailer for Geostorm, a natural disaster movie of epic proportions.

Viola Davis is Tough To Beat in the 2017 Oscar Race — Here’s Why

8 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Remember when Michelle Williams seemed to be a shoo-in for best supporting actress? Her performance in Kenneth Lonergan’s tragic drama “Manchester by the Sea” won the New York Film Critics Circle, which honored Williams for her small but mighty role.

That was just a month ago, but the final weeks of Oscar season have their own laws of relativity. Now the best supporting actress statue seems to be “Fences” star Viola Davis’ to lose, followed by Octavia Spencer of “Hidden Figures.”

Here’s how I see the breakdown of the race, by nominee.

Viola Davis

Williams might have stayed the Oscar frontrunner if Paramount hadn’t placed “Fences” Tony-winner Viola Davis in the Supporting Actress race instead of the more crowded Best Actress field. She kills it, and gives Williams serious competition. Both landed Critics Choice, Globe, SAG, and BAFTA Award nominations, and Davis took home the Critics Choice, »
