Mainstream Feature Film – The Great Escaper

Ravensthorpe Village Hall Northampton

Michael Caine and the late Glenda Jackson bring their A games to this true-life heart-warmer about the 89-year-old second world war Royal Navy veteran Bernard Jordan who staged a "great escape" from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating fallen comrades.
“A moving story and terrific performances from Caine and Glenda Jackson, in her final role, lift this melancholy real-life tale of a pensioner’s escapade in France” (The Guardian)
“A moving and surprisingly nuanced drama offering far more than flag-waving nostalgia. Superb performances from Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson ensure the latter’s final screen role is fittingly dignified.” (Empire)
