WATCH: ‘Resistance’ – Michael Sheen In German-Occupied Britain

Michael Sheen in 'Resistance'

Here’s a fairly self-explanitory trailer for the new movie Resistance, directed by Amit Gupta, which stars Michael Sheen as a freedom fighter in an alternative reality where the D-Day landings failed and the Germans invaded Britain. Andrea Riseborough also stars, as a woman struggling to maintain split loyalties across an impassible divide, as well as Tom Wlaschiha, playing a German officer.

It’s based on the novel by Owen Sheers, and as you can see, it’s kinda tense:

Yeah? Yeah.
