90-year-old Bernie Jordan (Michael Caine) absconds from his care home in order to attend the 70th Anniversary D-Day commemorations in France.
Driven only by a sense of duty and desire to remember his fallen comrades, Bernie’s story soon starts to make headlines back home.
Based on the true story, this charming film sees a wonderful late-career performance from Caine, with the late Glenda Jackson in her final film role as Bernie’s supportive wife.
