‘Save one life. Save the world.’

‘One Life’ tells the incredible, emotional true story of Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London broker who, in the months leading up to World War II, rescued 669 predominantly Jewish children from the Nazis. Nicky visited Prague in December 1938 and found families who had fled the rise of the Nazis in Germany and Austria, living in desperate conditions with little or no shelter and food, and under threat of Nazi invasion. He immediately realized it was a race against time. How many children could he and the team rescue before the borders closed?

Fifty years later, it’s 1988 and Nicky lives haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England; always blaming himself for not doing more. It’s not until the BBC show “That’s Life!” re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.

Anthony Hopkins stars as Winton. His subtle, emotionally powerful performance grounds the film, and he’s aided by classy support from, Helena Bonham Carter, Lena Olin, and his ‘Two Popes’ co-star Jonathan Pryce. (1hr 50 mins)

‘A heart-warming tribute to a remarkable humanitarian effort.’
