Eddie Izzard and Judi Dench are heading to Sky Cinema this March in new film Six Minutes to Midnight.
The period thriller, inspired by real events, is set in summer 1939. Hitler’s power is growing and tensions between the UK and Germany are at boiling point. The Augusta Victoria College, a finishing school for daughters and goddaughters of the Nazi elite on the south-coast of England, is under close scrutiny after the mysterious disappearance of their teacher Mr Wheatley. The school governess, Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench), hires English teacher Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) to replace Wheatley and help prepare the girls for the Anglo-German fellowship. Thomas slowly raises the suspicions of Ilse Keller (Carla Juri), the girls’ German tutor, who has secrets of her own. Caught in the crossfires, Thomas is framed for murder and goes on the run to clear his name and uncover Ilse’s true plan for the girls. Can he stop her before it’s too late?
Directed by Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey, Carnival Row, Set Fire to the Stars) and co-starring Jim Broadbent, David Schofield, James D’Arcy and Celyn Jones (Set Fire to the Stars, The Vanishing), the film is co-written by Jones, Izzard and Goddard.
It premieres on Sky Cinema on 26th March. Here’s the trailer:
