The remarkable true story of the elaborate plot cooked up by British intelligence in 1943 to fool Nazi Germany into thinking the allies planned to invade Greece and Sardinia, rather than their actual target, Sicily. The corpse of a tramp was invested with a fake identity, and then dumped off the coast of Spain carrying the plans for the supposed invasion. Starring Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen as Montagu and Cholmondeley, the architects of the plot. With Penelope Wilton and Kelly Macdonald, and Johnny Flynn as Ian Fleming.
