Storyline

A powerful new film inspired by a true story. This feature follows the heroic lives of a world leader and a young man swept up in the horrors of WWII. Both men are from Hungary--a country and German ally that had been spared the atrocities orchestrated by Hitler throughout much of Europe. As the war reaches its climax, Germany begins to doubt the loyalties of the Hungarian leadership-in particular Regent Horthy (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley). The Regent tries to navigate his country between the growing terror of Nazi Germany and the oppressive threat of communist Russia. He is ultimately faced with ceding power to another political party or accepting the execution of his son. As the crisis unfolds, thousands of his citizens are forced underground or put into ghettos. One of them is a young man named Elek Cohen (Jonas Armstrong) who is separated from his family and determined to find them. Aided by the woman he loves (Hannah Tointon), Elek disguises himself as a Nazi SS officer ... Written by Liberty Studios

Trivia

While scouting locations in Budapest, Hungary, the Liberty Studios production team stopped in a café where the stars of BBC's Robin Hood (2006), including Jonas Armstrong, were relaxing. Little did they know, a year later, they would cast Armstrong as the lead role in this movie. See more »

Goofs

In reality, Elek Cohen never posed as an SS officer. He posed as a member of the Arrow Cross and did save many Jews from certain death thanks to his disguise. See more »

Excellent!
18 August 2017 | by lynnette-3-756402See all my reviews

A powerful retelling of a time in history where standing up for what was right often meant sacrificing your life. The acting was excellent, the lead of which Jonas Armstrong carried off brilliantly. I tried to see this in the theaters but my local theater only showed it for a couple days. By the time I heard it was playing and got there they were no longer playing it. Too bad because we need more movies like this in our theaters. If you haven't watched it, do so. It's a very touching movie about the value of all human life.
