Six Minutes to Midnight
Sky Cinema, Saturday 27 March 2:10pm & On Demand
In the years leading up to the Second World War, there was a Nazi finishing school in Sussex that history has tried to brush over – until now. Augusta Victoria College in Bexhill schooled many young German girls connected to high ranking Nazi officials (including Heinrich Himmler’s god-daughter). The hope was to create a sense of diplomacy so war could be avoided. Needless to say, it didn’t work. In this film premiering on Sky, Eddie Izzard co-writes and stars in this spy thriller as a British intelligence agent posing as a teacher sent in to learn the establishment’s secrets.
