Unheroic yet elegiac, tragic yet uplifting, devastating yet deeply moving. Featuring gripping action on a scale unattainable by conventional war movies, Stuart Cooper's award-winning 'Overlord' is unlike any war film you have ever seen. This powerful and passionate film follows the journey of an ordinary young English soldier, Private Beadows, from his swift, dramatic induction into the army toward his inexorable destiny upon the hell-ravaged beaches at Normandy during in the D-Day invasion. Seamlessly weaving genuine WWII footage into a startlingly authentic story, beautifully shot by Stanley Kubrick's acclaimed cinematographer, the legendary John Alcott, 'Overlord' is not simply a unique piece of fiction, but an exceptional piece of history. Produced by the Imperial War Museum, digitally restored and now available for the first time since it was made over 30 years ago, 'Overlord' is a mesmerising cinematic achievement.
