At first, there is a bit of a familiar taste to this true-life wartime tale. But it becomes something tougher.
THE GUARDIAN (UK)
Ronan Keating co-stars in this British war drama based on a true story from the German occupation of the Channel Islands in 1942. A Jersey woman named Louisa Gould (Jenny Seagrove) takes in an escaped young Russian war prisoner (Julian Kostov), hiding him from the German forces.
The solemn score, plucky Brits and nasty Nazis are all familiar, but there’s a lived-in feel that transcends cliché. TOTAL FILM (UK)
