Based on a true story, espionage thriller Anthropoid follows the daring plot by two Czechoslovakian agents to assassinate SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect of the Holocaust and third in command of the Nazi forces behind Hitler and Himmler.
The film opens in December 1941, as two agents from the Czechoslovak government-in-exile parachute into enemy territory within occupied Czechoslovakia. With limited official intelligence and little by way of assistance in a country under lock-down, they must find their way to Heydrich against the odds and change the course of the war in Europe before it is too late.
Starring Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy, alongside Harry Lloyd, Charlotte Le Bon, and Toby Jones, the all-star cast delivers a compelling adaption of one of the most outrageous plots of the Second World War.
Anthropoid is out now on DVD (£12.99) and Blu-ray (£15.99). Certificate: 15.
