MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA tells the story of four soldiers caught behind enemy lines. During their attempt to return to base, they befriend a traumatized young Italian boy and soon find themselves in a remote Tuscan village - with civilians who have never even seen other ethnicities before. Strong relationships soon develop between those who would never have met in ordinary life and who understand and help each other against the horror of war. They know the need to learn to overcome cultural and language barriers and form an allegiance for the terrifying oncoming Nazi attack. Directed by revered film-maker Spike Lee (DO THE RIGHT THING, MALCOLM X) featuring an all-star cast including John Turturro (THE BIG LEBOWSKI, O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?), Laz Alonso (AVATAR), John Leguizamo (ROMEO AND JULIET, MOULIN ROUGE), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (INCEPTION) and Kerry Washington (RAY, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND), MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA pulls at the heart-strings and has left audiences world-wide with long-lasting impressions. Based on the novel by acclaimed writer James McBride, MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA centres on the famous Buffalo Soldiers -the 92nd Infantry Division, consisting of 15,000 African-American soldiers serving in Italy during the Second World War.
