Transatlantic - Netflix April 2023
« on: Mar 30, 2023 at 03:30 PM »
This World War II drama is based on the true story of Varian Fry, an American sent to France during World War II to smuggle out great artists and writers targeted by the Nazis, including Marc Chagall and Marcel Duchamp. Cory Michael Smith plays Fry, Gillian Jacobs is Mary Jayne Gold, the heiress who works with him and funds the escapes, and Corey Stoll plays the American consul in Marseille, where much of the action is set. Julie Orringer's first-rate 2019 novel, The Flight Portfolio, inspired by Fry's exploits, heightens his real-life struggle by adding a romance and is the source for a series that promises to be full of intrigue, suspense, heroism and duplicity.

Transatlantic premieres 7 April on Netflix internationally
