Based on a true story, the film tells the tale of Jersey woman Louise Gould, who looked after and kept hidden a Russian POW during the course of the conflict.
The British Council of Film says the story unfolds 'amid growing tension as it became clear that British wartime leader Winston Churchill would not risk an assault to re-capture the island and the community began to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty.
'Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.'
Easy rider: In a departure from his usual stubble, Ronan modelled a neatly-groomed blonde moustache
Keep it steady: The saying once you ride a bike you never forget may be true but Ronan looked like he could do with a bit of practice. Appearing shaky on two wheels, the star focused hard to ensure he didn't topple over
Upside down frown: John Hannah's stern scowl soon turned into a hearty smile as he too got to grips with his bike

That's better: Once she got to grips with her wheels Amanda couldn't help but give a cheeky smile

Appearing shaky on two wheels, the star focused hard to ensure he didn't topple over, proving that the saying about never forgetting about riding a bike may not be strictly true.
His black bike was a basic model with a large brown wicker basket on the front and a silver mudguard on the rear wheel.
John Hannah's stern scowl soon turned into a hearty smile as The Mummy actor too got to grips with his bike. Once they got into the swing of things all of the stars looked to be having a great time as they rode along a rural road.
Mr Selfridge star Amanda was well covered in a floral headscarf and hard-wearing grey wool coat. Her knee-length orange dress couldn't have been the most comfortable item to be active in, and she was further constricted by a knitted purple waistcoat.

Boyzone singer Ronan secured his first lead acting role in the 2013 musical comedy, Goddess. He played James Dickens, whose wife Elspeth has aspirations of a music career despite being tied to looking after her twins in a rural farmhouse.
Then in November 2014 he was cast as Guy in hit West End musical Once, at the Phoenix Theatre. His run in the show lasted until March and garnered largely positive reviews from critics.
The 38-year-old previously auditioned for a role in the global Blockbuster The Hobbit but was unsuccessful. His only other appearance on the big screen came as Postman Pat's singing voice in Postman Pat: The Movie.
Cheese: Unsurprisingly, the younger cast members were much more at home on their props
Pit stop: John appeared to welcome a brief respite from the constant peddling
Fun times: The crew's modern day weather resistant clothing was no doubt more effective that the cast's retro threads
No escape: There was no escaping the elements even during breaks between scenes
