"Jim Broadbent immerses himself in the role of the eccentric and moralistic British military hero, Colonel Alfred Wintle, renowned for single-handedly capturing an entire French village during World War I. After the war, while serving in British Intelligence, a quarrel with his superiors ended with confinement in the Tower of London. A maverick figure with a brilliant mind and intense convictions, Wintle was regarded by many as slightly batty, but not to himself. Inflexible, outspoken and chauvinistic to the end, he proclaimed to all who would listen that he thanked God every night for making him English. A fascinating tale of pride, strength and the ultimate cost of personal conviction."
