The Windermere Children
The harrowing and ultimately life-affirming story of Holocaust children who were relocated and rehabilitated in the UK after World War II. It began with uncertainty and fear in the new land, however it eventually led to the triumph of hope and goodwill and life-long friendship and happiness that they all cherish.
Director: Michael Samuels
Stars: Iain Glen, Romola Garai, Thomas Kretschmann
IMDB Rating 7.9/10
Well told and well acted by a mainly younger cast, this is a well told story based on true events and people.
A really nice touch to see some of the real children involved at the end of the film.
Many will be put off by a large proportion of sub titles but well worth the effort of this small thing which helps with the realism and atmosphere of the film.
MGN Rating 7/10
