|May 1940: the height of the ruthIess Nazi advance on the Western Front. As the German occupation of France gathers pace, fear grips the nation and the terrified people of Pas-de-Calais, a smaIl vilIage in northern France, decide they have no option but to fIee their homes. Like so many millions of their compatriots, they have nowhere to go, but the alternative of occupation and German thraIl is not an option. ln advance of the imminent invasion, the paths of a group of disparate people, including the Iocal mayor, a teacher, a young German boy and a Scottish Army Officer, converge, as they seek to outrun what appears to be, a chiIling fate. From accIaimed Director Christian Carion, with music from Oscar Winning Composer, Ennio Morricone, The Evacuation is a moving, uplifting and powerful story of the savagery of war, starring August Deihl (Inglourious Basterds, SaIt, The Counterfeiters) and Matthew Rhys (The Post, Burnt, The Edge of Love).
