Filming wraps on Eddie Izzard feature
Filming wraps next week on Six Minutes to Midnight starring Eddie Izzard and Judi Dench.
The feature - from Mad as Birds Films - has been shooting in Wales since June and has used locations including Llandudno, Penarth and Golden Grove country house near Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire.
Based on true events, the film is set during the early days of the Second World War in a girls’ finishing school on the English coast. Izzard plays English teacher Thomas Miller whose job involves teaching members of the German League for Girls - daughters of influential Nazi officers.
Miller is framed for murder and accused of being a German spy after he confronts the league’s enigmatic leader. Judi Dench co-stars as the school headmistress.
Andy Goddard directs from a screenplay he wrote with Celyn Jones and Izzard.
Mad as Birds Films was founded in 2013 to produce Set Fire To The Stars, a feature starring Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones that was filmed over just 18 days. Last year the company made Keepers, a period drama starring Gerard Butler that filmed in and around the Mull of Galloway.
