Quotes & Awards

  • “History and theater create a suspenseful mix when a Scottish meteorologist is summoned to the headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Force on the eve of the massive D-Day invasion of Normandy…The dialogue is tense and convincing as British actor Jonathan Cake leads a stellar cast in this story of how a lone scientist explained to the army’s own weather experts that a sunny day on the English Channel can quickly deteriorate into a fast-moving storm. The ultimately successful invasion hinged on persuading an entire army of 150,000 soldiers to wait a single day. Riveting.”
