Operation Mincemeat Trailer
The year is 1943. As the Allies plot an all-out invasion of Sicily to break Hitler’s hold on occupied Europe, they face an impossible challenge: how to protect a massive invasion force from being slaughtered by the Germans and their allies. As a result, it is up to two extraordinary intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen), to devise the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war — one that is centered on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.
Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to change the course of World War II — defying logic, endangering countless thousands of lives, and putting the nerves of its creators to the test to the point of collapse.
