In the glorious summer of 1939, the dark clouds of war are gathering over Europe. But His Majesty's Government is torn between opposing Hitler, and forming an alliance with him. When Anne discovers some recordings of secret meetings at her MP father's country pile, she begins to worry, but when her friend, anti-Nazi MP Hector Haldane, winds up dead, she really has cause for concern. Can one woman stop these sinister forces?
Stephen Poliakoff is one of my favourite directors. I loved The Lost Prince, another of his films. Glorious 39 takes us to pre-war England. The summer of 1939 was magnificent in England as far as the weather was concerned. Underlying this however was the threat of Hitler. After the horrors of World War I there were many people in England who wanted to avoid war at all costs, and were working to appease Hitler. This film looks at events surrounding one upper class family during that period. The acting is brilliant, as you would expect from Julie Christie, Christopher Lee, Corin Redgrave and David Tennant. Highly recommended.
