One Life

1h 50m Drama, Biography, History 2023

Based on the book “If It’s Not Impossible…: The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton” by Barbara Winton, this drama tells the incredible, emotional true story of a young London broker who visits Prague in December 1938.

In a race against time, Winton convinces Trevor Chadwick (Sharp) and Doreen Warriner (Garai) of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia to rescue as many children as possible before Nazi occupation closes the borders.

Fifty years later, Nicky (Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until the BBC show ‘That’s Life!’ re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried – all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.

“The film has the power to bring its audience to tears because the story is powerful, and the thoughtful creative decisions do justice to it.” ~Isabella Soares, Collider

“With a quality cast (which also includes Lena Olin as Winton’s wife and Jonathan Pryce as his friend), this is a finely crafted film that unfolds with great care, building towards a cathartic climax.” ~James Mottram, Total Film
