Dir: Oliver Parker | UK / USA | 2016 | 100 mins
Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Catherine Zeta Jones, Ian Lavender, Tom Courtenay
Taking its cue from the beloved British TV series, Oliver Parker’s superbly funny and evocative film version of Dad’s Army is brilliantly cast. Toby Jones is pompous Captain Mainwaring, full of delusions of grandeur; with Bill Nighy in the John le Mesurier role of Sergeant Wilson, whose fey upper crust ways infuriate his superior; with Michael Gambon as mild-mannered Private Godfrey, Ian Lavender (Pike in the original) as a Brigadier and Catherine Zeta Jones as glamorous Rose Winters, a journalist sent to report on the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea in 1944; just as MI5 find out there’s a German spy in the vicinity.
