The mission: Assassinate SS Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich, the diabolical murderer William L. Shirer called “the genius of the Final Solution.” Directed by Lewis Gilbert (The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker), written by The Pianist Academy Award winner* Ronald Harwood and filmed where the real events occurred, this taut thriller stars Timothy Bottoms, Anthony Andrews and Nicola Pagett as brave Czechs who defy their German invaders. You’ll see the abortive first assassination attempt and the flawed yet successful second. You’ll witness furious Nazi reprisals, including the annihilation of Lidice. And you’ll marvel at the bold last stand of seven patriots. Throughout, you’ll know these seven were real people in a real time. Ordinary people by everyday standards. Heroes by every other measure.
