The tale of a French boy (Stranger Things Noah Schnapp) who saves Jewish kids by smuggling them over the Pyrenees into Spain, this latest adpatation of a wartime YA novel (and stage play) by Michael Morpurgo, of War Horse fame, certainly looks handsome, but was dismissed by The Guardian as a “soggy mess”.

If that doesn’t put you off, this WWII drama also boasts our old friends the Nice Nazi and the Nasty Nazi, while the cast includes Anjelica Huston and Jean Reno.
