Watch screening of The Great Escaper and join Q&A at The Living Room Cinema

On Sunday 12th November, join The Living Room Cinema, Chipping Norton, for their next ‘In Conversation With’ screening

They’ll be welcoming producers Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein to introduce, and speak about, their new film The Great Escaper, starring Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson.

This films tells the story of WWII veteran Bernie Jordan, who ‘escaped’ his Hove care home to attend the 70th Anniversary D-Day landing ceremony in Normandy, commemorating his fallen comrades.

Douglas and Robert will share what it’s like to adapt a film from a true story, bringing Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson back together after almost 50 years, and their reflections on the film’s poignance in light of Remembrance Sunday.

Douglas has worked on productions including Mrs Brown starring Judi Dench, Charlotte Gray starring Cate Blanchett, Becoming Jane starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy, and the BAFTA-nominated Nowhere Boy.

Robert has an equally impressive body of work, including producing alongside Douglas on Nowhere Boy and Becoming Jane, as well as producing Brideshead Revisited, The Water Horse, and many more fantastic films and television shows. 

Join this screening and fascinating Q&A on Remembrance Sunday at 12.30pm, and help to mark the occasion and remember those who sacrificed for us.
