One Life 2024

1938: Nicolas Winton, an English stockbroker, is shocked by the Nazi’s invasion of Czechoslovakia. He decides to travel to Prague, a journey that results in him helping to rescue 669 children from a terrible fate.

Fifty years later, and Nicky is haunted by the children he was unable to save. But when the BBC television show That’s Life!, introduces him to some of the now grown-up children he rescued, he finally begins to come to terms with the emotions he has carried for many years, and also receives the recognition his unknown bravery deserves.

Anthony Hopkins and Johnny Flynn feature as the older and younger Winton, alongside an all-star cast, in this incredible true story of bravery and heroism.

Director: James Hawes
Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Flynn, Helena Bonham Carter, Lena Olin

Bristling with uncomfortable contemporary relevance, One Life is as important as it is powerful, and a film that will only fail to move those with hearts of granite.”
