saving private ryan

6 June, 2019

A special screening marking 75 years to the day since World War Two’s D-Day Normandy landings, and 21 years since the film was released. Captain John Miller leads his soldiers behind enemy lines to find James Ryan. Faced with impossible odds, the men question their orders. Why are eight men risking their lives to save just one? Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, each man searches for his own answer – and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage. Famed for its graphic portrayal of war, and for the intensity of its opening 27 minutes, which includes a depiction of the Omaha Beach assault during the Normandy landings, the film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Hanks and Best Original Screenplay. It won five, including Spielberg’s second win for Best Director.
