The true story of Sir Nicholas Winton (Johnny Flynn), a young London broker who, in the months leading up to World War II, rescued 669 predominantly Jewish children from the Nazis.

Winton 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 Winton (Anthony Hopkins) 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 a live BBC television show, 'That's Life', surprises him by introducing him to some surviving children - now adults - that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he had carried for five decades.

THE HOLDOVERS

The HoldoversMeavy Parish Hall

Friday 3rd May, 8:00pm

Doors open at 7:30pm, film starts at 8:00pm

Admission 5.00, pay at the door. 

No admission to children under 15.

Certificate: 15       Runtime: 2hr 13min 

Nobody likes teacher Paul Hunham (Giamatti) -- not his students, not his fellow faculty, not the headmaster, who all find his pomposity and rigidity exasperating. With no family and nowhere to go over Christmas holiday in 1970, Paul remains at school to supervise students unable to journey home.

After a few days, only one student holdover remains -- a trouble-making 18-year-old named Angus, a good student whose bad behavior always threatens to get him expelled. Joining Paul and Angus is head cook Mary (Randolph)-an African American woman who caters to sons of privilege and whose own son was recently lost in Vietnam.

These three very different shipwrecked people form an unlikely Christmas family sharing comic misadventures during two very snowy weeks in New England. The real journey is how they help one another understand that they are not beholden to their past-they can choose their own futures.
