    One Life, starring Anthony Hopkins.

    The true story of Nicholas Winton, who at the start of WW2 found a way to save hundreds of child refugees trapped in Czechoslovakia. An incredibly moving film telling a powerful true story, "action" or special effects are not needed to keep you thoroughly involved.

    The reminder at the beginning of the film about of how WW2 stared should act as a warning with what's happening in Ukraine, playing politics and hiding behind procedures is how evil flourishes.

    The middle and end of the film is a real challenge to our attitudes towards refugees today.

    Just binge watched the Salad Fingers episodes again. First saw them back in the late 2000's and find them quite relaxing.

    We went to see this last night and certainly felt enlightened/amazed by it (like Oppenheimer last year) as it’s more an education than entertainment.

    Winton was an incredible man and his belief to get this Herculean deed done (with the input of so many like minded people) is as remarkable as the matter that it’s taken 35 years since the story came to light for it to become a film.

    To hear that for every child a £50 (equivalent to what was then roughly 3 or 4 months pay) security was required to be paid in advance to the government by the fostering parents was shocking. That the vast majority came from public donations and all in a matter of weeks/months was remarkable.

    I came away with a reinforced sense that society today needs to take a step back. These were the golden generation and whilst everything is now more advanced (health, welfare, education, etc) than it was, we are all to a lesser or greater degree morally poorer than we were.

    Ferrari.
    Loved it apart from the CGI car crashes…! Brilliant film IMO.
    The reviews on some of the sites have not been great but I really got into it and could see the story evolve in difficult times for the family.

    Sounds like a good film for two reasons then, @stollydriver. It's a super kick bum film. And Jason Statham's bum is in it! ;):heart_eyes:

    Saw this the other night, it's very good indeed, and as an added bonus it's got Michelle Keegan in it too. Worth watching just for her.
