Tense WW2 thriller The Birdcatcher heads to Cinemas, Digital & DVD from 4th October.


Inspired by harrowing true events. This gripping new thriller uncovers a hidden slice of World War II history that is as shocking as it is inspiring. Norway, 1942. During her attempt to flee Nazi persecution, 14-year-old Jewish girl Esther finds herself alone and forced to conceal her identity on a Nazi sympathiser farm. Forced to make a series of choices, her actions shift the paths of those around her. From collaboration to resistance, the population’s reaction to their Nazi conquerors was not always clear-cut.

From British director Ross Clarke and starring Sarah-Sofie Boussnina (Knightfall) as Esther and August Diehl (Inglorious Basterds), the star of Terence Mallick’s anticipated A Hidden Life. From the executive producers of Churchill and Peterloo.

Signature Entertainment presents The Birdcatcher in Cinemas, Digital HD & DVD from 4th October
