Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and the Reich's third in command after Hitler and Himmler.
Meditative family drama about healing old wounds as the family's matriarch is approaching her sunset. Jean Simmons, terribly feeble-she passed away less than a year after the film's release, gives a gentle but resolute performance. Nice that she could make her final bow above the title of a film that while it's not a masterpiece is a respectable showcase for her great often under-appreciated talent.
Made before his breakthrough this has Jamie Dornan as a young drifter who has been a companion to Jean before the arrival of her son and grandchildren. He's okay but the script fumbles his part and after a solid start his role loses focus and drops off into meaninglessness.
Not a great film, though it does have some beautiful settings, but if you're a fan of Miss Simmons worth catching for her lovely last performance.
