Eddie Izzard plays an English teacher who is forced to go on the run when he is framed for murder in the Sky Original.
Sky has released a trailer for the upcoming period thriller Six Minutes to Midnight.
The film stars Eddie Izzard, Judi Dench and Jim Broadbent alongside Carla Carla Juri, David Schofield, James D’Arcy, and Celyn Jones.
Summer 1939, Hitler’s power is growing and tensions between the UK and Germany are at a boiling point. The Augusta Victoria College, a finishing school for daughters and goddaughters of the Nazi elite on the south coast of England, is under close scrutiny after the mysterious disappearance of their teacher Mr. Wheatley.
The school governess, Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench), hires English teacher Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) to replace Wheatley and help prepare the girls for the Anglo-German fellowship. Thomas slowly raises the suspicions of Ilse Keller (Carla Juri), the girls’ German tutor, who has secrets of her own.
Caught in the crossfires, Thomas is framed for murder and goes on the run to clear his name and uncover Ilse’s true plan for the girls. Can he stop her before it’s too late?
Six Minutes to Midnight, a Sky Original, will be available on Sky Cinema from 26 March.
