Reel Pieces with Annette Insdorf: Jeremy Irons on Munich: The Edge of War

Reel Pieces with Annette Insdorf: Jeremy Irons on Munich: The Edge of War

Moderator Annette Insdorf interviewed Jeremy Irons about the new Netflix film, Munich: The Edge of War. Based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris, the film is an engrossing drama set during the Munich Agreement of 1938, with Europe on the brink of World War II.

Munich: The Edge of War is directed by German filmmaker Christian Schwochow. The screenplay — based on Robert Harris’ book — is by Ben Power (whose adaptations include The Hollow Crown and The Lehman Trilogy). As Adolf Hitler prepares to invade Czechoslovakia, Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution. Amid mounting pressure, British civil servant Hugh Legat (George McKay, from 1917) accompanies Chamberlain to Munich. There, he encounters a buddy from Oxford, German diplomat Paul von Hartmann (Jannis Niewöhner), who has a stolen document signaling Hitler’s true intent — a war of conquest across Europe. Amid frantic negotiations at the Munich Conference, Hugh and Paul conspire to prevent a terrifying conflict.

Irons is the executive producer of this powerful documentary, a wake-up call about global waste.
