About The Production
For secret World War II operatives Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and Marianne Beausejour
(Marion Cotillard), the key to survival is never being truly known by anyone.
They are experts in deception, play-acting, second-guessing and assassination.
When they accidentally fall for each other in the middle of an extraordinarily
risky mission, their one hope is to leave all the double-dealing behind - but
instead, suspicion and danger become the core of their wartime marriage as
husband-and-wife are pitted against each other in an escalating, potentially
lethal test of loyalty, identity and love...with global consequences.
From Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis, the innovative director behind Forrest Gump,
Cast Away and Flight, comes Allied, at once a mesmerizing espionage thriller,
sweeping war drama and passionate romance between two assassins who may be fated
soulmates or deadly enemies - or both. In a sumptuous, visually evocative
production that roams from Casablanca to London's Blitz days to German-occupied
France, Zemeckis creates the kind of grand tale that flourished in Golden
Hollywood - full of mystery, thrills and romantic heat - yet told with all the
richly immersive power of 21st Century cinema.
The film unites Best Actor Oscar nominee Brad Pitt (Moneyball, The Curious Case
Of Benjamin Button, Twelve Monkeys) and Best Actress Oscar winner Marion
Cotillard (La Vie En Rose, Two Days, One Night, The Dark Knight Rises) as the
two crafty spies caught between their feverish feelings for one another and an
act of duplicity that could detonate everything they care about.
The year is 1942, and 26 countries have just aligned into the Allied Forces to
fight the Nazi threat overrunning Europe. On an urgent assignment for the
British Special Operations Executive (SOE), Canadian airman Max Vatan parachutes
into occupied Casablanca to take out Germany's ambassador. There, he encounters
ravishing French resistance fighter Marianne - chosen to pose as his spouse. But
their growing flame for each other soon becomes more than an act, even as they
face devastating odds. Daring to reunite in London, their love only deepens and
they start a family. But then comes the day Max is informed his idyllic new
family life may be a monumental deception - sparking a desperate chase after the
truth through a potentially lethal maze of borders and alliances both
international and personal.
