WILD STRAWBERRIES: GLORIOUS 39

Director: STEPHEN POLIAKOFF

129 minutes| U.K.| 2009| Drama


This film screened 27th & 29th January 2010.

Wild Strawberries, our bimonthly film club for the over 55s.

Fans of Hitchcock, conspiracy thrillers or period dramas will enjoy this adventure set in London and Norfolk, 1939.

Glorious 39 stars Romola Garai (Inside I’m Dancing’s appealing carer) as the budding film star and adopted daughter of an aristocratic Tory MP who stumbles upon a plot to keep Britain out of war. Blackmail, secret documents, a young woman in peril and a move towards appeasement are all part of this complex drama by Stephen Poliakoff. More familiar perhaps from his TV dramas (including Shooting the Past, The Lost Prince), the writer/director assembles a remarkable cast for this mystery tale of duplicity and paranoia in pre-war England.
