Inspired by a true love story this bittersweet romantic drama stars Michael Caine in his last film role. The summer of 2014 marked the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings – octogenarian Bernie Jordan (Caine) made global headlines as he staged a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades. It was a story that captured the imagination of the world. Bernie’s Big Adventure only spanned a mere 48 hours, but it also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (played by Glenda Jackson, who passed shortly after production concluded) – the story celebrates their love with touching sincerity.
