The Great Escaper

Synopsis:

In the summer of 2014, a World War II veteran sneaks out of his care home to attend the 70th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

Amazing film a true British gem. pure class from Mr caine.

Bernie and Rene looked like my now passed beautiful nan and grandad from Nottingham, grandad was there in the navy, with my nan working at players maybe knowing Mr Bennett’s sweetheart, these connections made it a hard for me to watch as they were my heroes. but well worth it.

Brought me to tears many times. One of the most heart warming films I’ve seen in years.

God bless those generations. You were living poetry from the start to the very end.
