This little war makes everything uncertain...
Glorious 39 (2009) was written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff who should be affirmed for his masterpiece of cinematography. Set in 1939, this is a mystery film surrounding the Keyes family entangled in a WWII wartime conspiracy; that proves lethal.
Casting a superb cohort of actors/actresses, eclipsing the feature film is undoubtedly Romola Garai who captivates us with her screen appearances as the heroine, Anne Keyes. Bill Nighy as the dapper Alexander Keyes cannot be ignored, whom creates an ominous and unsettling tone to the film.
Contrary to popular opinion (see Rotten Tomatoes) I found it draw comparisons to Atonement and other period cinema greats. I have included some film stills in attempt to synopsise the films spectacular viewings.
P.S how extraordinary is the costuming, especially that green velvet evening gown worn by Celia (Juno Temple) and that red gown!
