Set in the summer of 1939, the IFC film Six Minutes to Midnight explores secrets, mysteries and a chaotic time in the world when an imminent war is in sight. A missing teacher, daughters of Nazi leaders, a girl’s school in a coastal English town, and spies around every corner are all on display in the World War II era film starring Judi Dench and Eddie Izzard.
Today on Open Dialogue Noel T. Manning II interviews Andy Goddard (director, co-writer) and Celyn Jones (co-writer, actor). They offer insights on bringing this period story to the screen and the message and meaning of why this film matters for today’s audiences.
