Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
Two Czechoslovakian soldiers (Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy) parachute into Bohemia in 1942 on a dangerous mission: They must assassinate SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, leader of the Nazi forces controlling their country. The men are assigned two women (Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerová) to pose as their lovers so as not to arouse suspicion in public, but they are soon overwhelmed by nervousness and fear over the importance of their assignment. Toby Jones co-stars. Based on true events, Anthropoid (the title comes from Operation Anthropoid, the official code name for the assassination attempt) was directed by Sean Ellis.
