Six Minutes to Midnight 2018

Summer 1939. Influential families in Nazi Germany have sent their daughters to a finishing school in an English sea side town to learn the language and be ambassadors for a future looking National Socialist. A teacher there sees what is coming and is trying to raise the alarm. But no one is listening.

WITH EDDIE IZZARD, JUDI DENCH, JAMES D’ARCY, JIM BROADBENT
James D’Arcy will play a Captain in the movie

Shooting has begun on SIX MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT which boasts an exquisite selection of British thespians in the cast lead by Judi Dench, Eddie Izzard, James D’Arcy, Celyn Jones (who also wrote the script) and Jim Broadbent!

In the movie,  based on true events from 1939, Izzard, who recently already played with Judi Dench in Victoria and Abdul, plays a teacher named Thomas Miller who has taken a last minute and controversial role teaching English to the daughters of high ranking Nazis at the Augusta Victoria College, Bexhill-on-Sea – a finishing school on the south coast of England. Under the watchful eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench), and her devout assistant Ilse Keller (Carla Juri), the girls practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood. When the body of a former teacher is discovered, it triggers a sequence of deadly events and leaves Thomas running from the police with the threat of being hanged for murder.

Judi Dench will be the strict headmistress!

Chopin: A Desire For Love 2002

A full-length movie on you tube.

The film starts when Frédéric Chopin is still a young man living with his parents and his two sisters in Warsaw where he frequently plays the piano and composes music for the decidedly unmusical Grand Duke Constantine. Shortly before the November Uprising, Chopin’s father urges him to leave for Paris, which Frédéric does. Once in Paris he meets novelist George Sand, who has just split from her violent lover Mallefille. Although he is immediately drawn to Sand, he initially refuses her advances. However, after several months, their mutual friend Albert urges Chopin to get to know George better and a passionate romance starts to build. During their affair, Chopin is diagnosed with tuberculosis and has to cope with a declining health. The relationship is further complicated by George’s two children: Maurice and Solange. While Maurice’s near-hysterical hatred of Chopin leads from one escalation to the other, Solange develops an obsessive love for Chopin which leads to a rivalry between Solange and her mother. After several years of constant fighting between Chopin, George, Maurice and Solange, the relationship ends and Chopin calls for one of his sisters to help him get through the last days of his life.

Gentleman Jack (once called Shibden Hall)

BBC’S ‘GENTLEMAN JACK’
MINI SERIES REVEALS FULL CAST
Something lesbiefriendly today, spylings! BBC has revealed the whole cast for their period set mini series GENTLEMAN JACK (previously known as Shibden Hall) which will celebrate 19th century feminism led by Surrane Jones! Can’t say I’m overly optimistic given the fact the eight episode series has been written by Sally Wainwright who gave us the borderline unwatchable and mind numbingly uninspired To Walk Invisible, but we shall give it the benefit of the doubt. The series will air on HBO in USA.

Surrane Jones will be the Gentleman Jack!

True to her own nature, she plans to marry a woman. And not just any woman: the woman Anne Lister marries must be seriously wealthy. Every part of Anne’s story was recorded in her diaries that contain the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code that is now broken.The story examines Anne’s relationships at home with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife.
