September 01, 2022

In exciting news, Helena Bonham Carter has been added to the cast of See-Saw Film's drama One Life. Carter is joining two-time Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and Johnny Flynn in the directorial debut from James Hawes (Slow Horses, Black Mirror, The Alienist). 

One Life tells the true story of how Nicholas Winton, a London stockbroker, helped spearhead a seemingly impossible plan that saved 669 children as the Nazis advanced on Czechoslovakia on the eve of World War Two. The title is paraphrased from the Jewish Talmud: “Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.”

One Life is based on If It’s Not Impossible…The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton, which was penned by his daughter Barbara Winton. The screenplay has been co-written by Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl) and Nick Drake (My Father). Cast also includes Jonathan Pryce, Romola Garai and Alex Sharp and Lena Olin.
