Six Minutes to Midnight

Based on incredible true events

Based on true events from 1939, the film follows teacher Thomas Miller (Izzard) who has taken a last
minute and controversial role teaching English to the daughters of high-ranking Nazis at the AugustaVictoria College, Bexhill-on-Sea – a finishing school on the south coast of England. Under the watchful
eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Dench), and her devout assistant Ilse Keller (Juri), the girls
practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood.
When the body of a former teacher is discovered, it triggers a sequence of deadly events and leaves
Thomas running from the police with the threat of being hanged for murder.

"As a thriller that examines the position of children as pawns of empire, it’s certainly worth a look."- John P. Harvey,

"Six Minutes to Midnight offers solid performances and a glimpse into a little-known, unsettling bit of British history"- Cate Marquis, St. Louis Jewish Light
