An all-star cast heads up this intimate film about how author PG Wodehouse came to face a charge of treason during the Second World War, and how this quintessential Englishman became an exile from his own country. In 1941, Wodehouse was released from internment in Germany and persuaded by the German Foreign Office to record five infamous broadcasts to the USA, wittily relating his experiences of camp life. What had been a hit with his fellow internees was met with anger back in England. The master of fanciful plots had become a pawn in one of the biggest propaganda battles of the war between Germany and the Allies over the entry of the United States into the conflict. Smart, pithy, and with all the wit of Wodehouse, Bafta and Emmy-award winning writer Nigel Williams gets inside the head of a writer whose innocent world view clashed disastrously with the reality of a world at war.
BAFTA® and Emmy-award winning writer Nigel Williams crafts an intimate portrait of British humorist P.D. Wodehouse in Wodehouse In Exile. An all-star cast led by Tim-Pigott-Smith (37 Days, Houdini) and Zoe Wanamaker (Mr. Selfridge) shares the gripping tale of how the creator of Jeeves and Wooster faced treason charges that prevented him from setting foot on English soil again.
