UK Jewish Film Festival Sets 2023 Lineup Including Anthony Hopkins Pic ‘One Life’

September 22, 2023

The UK Jewish Film Festival has revealed its lineup of 2023 gala screenings and premieres, including a special presentation of the Anthony Hopkins pic One Life.

One Life, directed by James Hawes, will open the festival, which runs November 9 – 19. The pic tells the true-life story of Nicholas Winton, a British stockbroker and son of German-Jewish parents, who, after being horrified by tales of refugees fleeing Nazi-occupied Sudetenland, sets off for Prague and begins to find ways to bring out as many refugee children as possible. Aided by his formidable mother, Barbara (Helena Bonham Carter), and a coterie of dedicated activists, their seemingly impossible mission faces daunting obstacles in this inspiring true story of hope and determination. James Hawes will be present on the night to introduce his film.
