It is Autumn 1938 and Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution… And so begins “Munich – The Edge of War”, a new Netflix Film based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris. The film will be released in cinemas in January 2022 before heading to Netflix globally on January 21st.
The film stars Jeremy Irons as Neville Chamberlain whose government is desperately seeking a peaceful solution. But with the pressure building, Hugh Legat (George MacKay), British civil servant, and Paul von Hartmann (Jannis Niewöhner), German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency Conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the centre of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger. With the whole world watching, can war be averted and, if so, at what cost?
The film is directed by Christian Schwochow (“Cracks in The Shell”), produced Andrew Eaton and the screenplay adapted by Ben Power. Expect a trailer in the coming months.
