Film Evening – Operation Mincemeat

November 26, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Film Evening at Pauntley Village Hall on Saturday 26th November at 7.30 p.m. ‘Operation Mincemeat. (PG)

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.

£6.00 per head to include coffee and cake.  Bring your own wine/beer.  Raffle.  Advance booking essential please.  Contact pauntleyvillagehall@gmail.com or phone 01531 822315 to book.
