Poster for the film ONE LIFE

One Life

One Life tells the incredible true story of Nicholas “Nicky” Winton, a young London broker who helps rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children from Czechoslovakia in a race against time before Nazi occupation closes the borders on the verge of World War II. Fifty years later, Nicky (Sir Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of those he wasn’t able to bring to safety.

"One of Hopkins’ best performances from the last few years."
Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
"The film has the power to bring its audience to tears because the story is powerful, and the thoughtful creative decisions do justice to it."
Isabella Soares, Collider
