Operation Mincemeat

A quintessentially British historical drama from the UK’s John Madden (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) featuring a cast of superlative British acting talent, including Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Johnny Flynn and Jason Isaacs. Like Dunkirk and The Darkest Hour, this is a stunning slice of history, thrillingly retold.
