Starring: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris
A nostalgic blend of romance and Second World War heroics, this old school melodrama is just the thing for fans of classics like Casablanca. It’s 1942 and Wing Commander Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) has arrived in French Morocco to meet Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), a high ranking member of the French Resistance who will impersonate his wife and assist in the assassination of the German ambassador. This sham marriage quickly becomes the real deal, but things get complicated when leaked intelligence suggests that his wife might actually be a Nazi spy. The period detail – especially the early scenes set in Casablanca – is impressively recreated by director Robert Zemeckis, while Pitt and Cotillard make for attractive stand-ins for Bogart and Bergman.
