 “The Dig,” based on a true story, is a gripping historical drama that reimagines the events of the 1939 excavation of a wooden ship and cemeteries from the Dark Ages.

As WWII looms in England, a wealthy widow (Carey Mulligan) retains the services of an amateur archaeologist (Ralph Fiennes) to excavate the earthen mounds on her estate. When they make an extremely important historical discovery it attracts the attention of a Cambridge University archaeologist and his colleagues who seize the site. This amazing find brings echoes of Britain’s past that resonate in the face of its uncertain future. [2020, UK, 112 min, Rated: PG-13].

Johnny Oleksinski of the “New York Post” writes, “It’s an intimate film that moves at the deliberate, careful pace of an excavation and, in so doing, uncovers a few gems along the way. Fionnuala Halligan of “Screen International” remarks, “Delivers strong performances - from Ralph Fiennes and Carey Mulligan in particular - and top-level craft, but with an undercurrent of real emotion which sensitively conveys the fragility of lives and time.”
