Fight for your country...

This is a type of film that we don't see that often. The "What if" idea. A change in a pivotal action in history and then run with the idea. One, that historians have been pondering for years, is what would happen if England was invaded. This is a slightly different take as it's set after the failure of D-Day and not the success of Operation Sealion. The film looks at the collaborator and resistance fighter.

D-Day has failed, Britain is under Nazi occupation!

Sarah Lewis, a 26-year-old farmer’s wife, awakes one morning to find that her husband has disappeared along with all the men in the valley. Assuming they have joined the Resistance, the women of this tiny community pull together, taking on the running of the farms, and wait, desperate for news. A German patrol arrives in the valley, the purpose of its mission a mystery. When a severe winter forces the two groups into co-operation, Sarah begins an acquaintance with the patrol’s commanding officer, Albrecht. Cut off from the surrounding war, the lines between collaboration, duty, occupation and survival become blurred.

RESISTANCE features a sensational lead performances from British rising star Andrea Riseborough (Brighton Rock, Made In Dagenham, W.E.), and Tom Wlaschia (Enemy At The Gates, Valkyrie, Brideshead Revisited), and co-stars Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon, The Damned United).
RESISTANCE is in UK Cinemas from November 25, 2011.
