This powerful and gripping WWII RAF story is directed by David Blair and includes an impressive ensemble cast including Iwan Rheon, Milo Gibson, Stefanie Martini, Krystof Hadek and Marcin Dorocinski. HURRICANE tells the relatively unknown story of the Polish fliers who found themselves fighting for the freedom of their own country in foreign skies. Seen through the eyes of Jan Zumbach (Rheon), fighter ace and adventurer, it tells how the Poles, driven across Europe by the German war machine, finally made their last stand. Flying Hurricanes for the RAF over Britain, they became a key component in the legend of 'The Few'. Up against the might of the Luftwaffe they hoped that, by saving Great Britain from Nazi invasion, they were keeping the dream of a free Poland alive. In the lethal melee above England in that summer of 1940, they fought with a tenacity and skill that earned them the admiration of the whole British nation. The dogfights against superior planes cost some of the men their lives. The constant strain of gladiatorial combat took away the sanity of others. But, as Zumbach discovers as the war stutters to a close, becoming the best in the RAF is a hollow victory for the Poles. This astonishing story is brought to life on screen in HURRICANE, using one of the last operating Hurricanes in existence during filming and is a true must-watch for all fans of war films and action thrillers.
