'Six Minutes to Midnight' Imagines British-German Relations During WWII at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on March 23rd

Support Provided By

Q&A immediately following with director/writer Andy Goddard and writer Ceylin Jones.

In August 1939, an English teacher disappears from a finishing school for girls on the south coast of England. Days later, Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) is hired by the headmistress Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench) on a trial period. Soon, he discovers his students include daughters of the Nazi High Command, teachings of the Third Reich taking place and a clandestine plot. When he tries to raise the alarm, authorities suspect him of being a German spy and he is betrayed.

Director/writer Andy Goddard described the process as "one the most exciting things I’ve had to cast… I saw about 70 girls on tape and narrowed it down to 12, then I went to Berlin to do the screen tests and found our key six who have surpassed all my expectations they are fantastic. Audiences may come to see Judi, Eddie and Jim but I hope they walk away with eager to see our young German actresses in whatever they do next."

Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with director/writer Andy Goddard and writer Ceylin Jones.

The film screens on Tuesday, March 23 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
