One Life

PG, mature theme.
Dir: James Hawes.
UK, 2023, 110 min.
Anthony Hopkins, Lena Olin, Jonathan Pryce, Helena Bonham Carter.

“Anthony Hopkins is in sterling form in this moving biographical drama. He plays humanitarian Nicholas Winton, whose exploits in Czechoslovakia before the Second World War would see him later dubbed the ‘British Schindler’. We meet Nicholas as a young London stockbroker, whose visit to Prague in 1938 not only inspires him to help evacuate refugee Jewish children before the Nazis arrive, but also find homes for them in Britain. A race against time ensues and Winton saves hundreds of lives, but he spends the following decades uncelebrated and blaming himself for not doing more. It’s here that Hopkins takes centre stage, as an old leather suitcase unlocks memories that will eventually lead Winton to a life-changing appearance on the BBC’s That’s Life! show in 1988. Hopkins’s subtle, emotionally powerful performance grounds the film, and he’s aided by classy support from Lena Olin, Helena Bonham Carter and his Two Popes co-star Jonathan Pryce.” —Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times (UK)
