Charlotte Gray's World War II assignment could be the first of many. Or her fatal last. The people she meets could be friends. Or insidious traitors. Trained to be an undercover courier for England, Charlotte straps on a parachute and falls from the sky into Vichy France. There she will assist the French Resistance in its defiance of Nazi occupation. Only one out of three couriers will return home. Cate Blanchett enthralls as Charlotte, who goes behind enemy lines while keeping secret her personal mission to find her lover, an RAF pilot downed over France. And Gillian Armstrong (Mrs. Soffel, Little Women) directs a sterling cast that includes Billy Crudup (Almost Famous) and Michael Gambon (Gosford Park).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A dull adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's novel despite gorgeous cinematography and Cate Blanchett's best efforts.

Common Sense Says
Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has brutal wartime violence and wrenching emotional scenes, including children in peril and the deaths of important characters. There is some strong language and a non-graphic sexual situation. Characters smoke and drink. The issue of Nazi anti- Semitism is frankly portrayed. The female main character is brave, smart, and heroic.
