Synopsis / Plot
Five Came Back is an ambitious three-part documentary narrated by Meryl Streep aiming to tell the story of Hollywood during the Second World War. The series will look at the work of five award-winning directors – John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens – and explore how their experience documenting and participating in World War II helped them produce their greatest work. The three episodes are narrated by Meryl Streep, and also include contributions from five modern filmmakers: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. They explain how Hollywood responded to the threat of Nazism and Hitler via the big screen, and brought the war home to millions of cinema goers.
