Our Score
This excellent wartime drama is based on the real-life exploits of Mary Lindell, a British woman who used her Paris home as a halfway house for Allied soldiers trapped behind enemy lines. The story is tense and emotive, mainly because of the impressive array of talent on display: Judy Davis, one of the greatest and least "starry" actresses around, plays Lindell and shows the same sensivity that she brought to her roles in A Passage to India and Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives. There's also fine support from Sam Neill, Anthony Higgins, Kate Beckinsale and the always dependable Denholm Elliott in one of his final screen appearances.


Biopic of Second World War heroine Mary Lindell, who helped freedom fighters and members of the Allied forces escape the clutches of the Nazis in occupied France. Starring Judy Davis, Sam Neill, Denholm Elliot and Kate Beckinsale.
