Free Men tells the story of a young Algerian man who during the Nazi regime of the 1940s becomes the unwitting protector of two Jewish children. Led by rising star Tahir Rahim, whose stunning performance in A Prophet has really put him on the map, along with a substantial part in The Eagle.
Free Men has an urgency about it that promises to give us something new on a vastly over-documented period of history. Tahir Rahim possess an incredible captivating quality that once you’ve seen the trailer you cannot help be affected by.
