★★★★ "Engrossing... an incredible and poignant story... accessible, engaging and human." - Stuff

It’s 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily, but they face an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre.

It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen), to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war - centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. 

Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to alter the course of the war -defying logic, risking countless thousands of lives, and testing the nerves of its creators to breaking point.

Also starring Kelly Macdonald, Penelope Wilton, Johnny Flynn and Jason Isaacs.

★★★★ "Highly recommended" - The Mail on Sunday
★★★★ "A gripping tale" - Daily Mail (UK)
★★★★ "Matthew Macfadyen steals the show in a pacey war thriller" - Times
★★★★ "Bolstered by thrilling performances from an inspired cast" - Jewish Chronicle
★★★★ - Sunday Independent (Ireland)  |  ★★★★ - Financial Times

"A classy production with a first-rate ensemble cast, splicing the story’s intrigue with a poignant vein of melodrama." - Hollywood Reporter

"A cracking espionage caper." - Time Magazine
