Win signed, limited edition Michael Caine film poster

To mark the release of The Great Escaper, we’ve two signed film posters up for grabs – here’s how to win.

Cast your minds back to the summer of 2014. Bernard Jordan made global headlines when he staged a “great escape” from his care home in East Sussex. His plan, to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades at the D-Day Landings’ 70th anniversary.

It was a story that captured the imagination of the world, as Bernie embodied the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, this wasn’t the whole story. Behind the headlines was one man’s need to come to terms with the lasting trauma of war.

The Great Escaper stars Michael Caine as Bernie, and follows his adventures, spanning a mere 48 hours. The film also celebrates Bernie’s 60-year marriage to Rene (played by the late Glenda Jackson) but always with an eye to the lessons we might learn from the Greatest Generation.

The Great Escaper opens in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from October 6 2023.
