Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment have announced that World War II RAF drama Hurricane will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 22nd October 2018.
Based on a true story, the film stars Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones, Marvel’s Inhumans), Milo Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), Stefanie Martini (Crooked House, Prime Suspect 1973), Krystof Hadek (Under the Skin, Dark Blue World) and Marcin Dorocinski (Pitbull Anthropoid), Filip Plawiak (Aftermath, Demon, The Red Spider) and Adrian Zamba (TV’s Belfer).
Directed by David Blair (The Messenger, Away, Accused), Hurricane tells the incredible true story of the heroic Polish pilots who fought alongside the Royal Air Force in order to take down the Nazi invaders during the Battle of Britain.
Hurricane tells the story of the Polish fliers who found themselves fighting for the freedom of their own country in foreign skies. Seen through the eyes of Jan Zumbach (Rheon), fighter ace and adventurer, it tells how the Poles, driven across Europe by the German war machine, finally made their last stand. Flying Hurricanes for the RAF over Britain, they became a key component in the legend of ‘The Few’. Up against the might of the Luftwaffe they hoped that, by saving Great Britain from Nazi invasion, they were keeping the dream of a free Poland alive.
In the lethal melee above England in that summer of 1940, they fought with a tenacity and skill that earned them the admiration of the whole British nation. The dogfights against superior planes cost some of the men their lives. The constant strain of gladiatorial combat took away the sanity of others. But, as Zumbach discovers as the war stutters to a close, becoming the best in the RAF is a hollow victory for the Poles.
Hurricane arrives as the RAF celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. It used one of the last operating Hurricanes in existence during filming.
