Time Out says

The true-life story of Operation Mincemeat – an epic wartime deception involving a repurposed corpse with a back story – is reimagined in John Madden’s spy thriller. Adapted from Ben Macintyre’s book, it follows British intelligence wonks Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen) as they concoct the plan, assemble a team and go to worth pulling the wool over the Nazis’ eyes.
