Cautions: brief mild violence, brief mild sensuality, and some language
Cottage to Let: a simple, unsuspicious title for a movie about espionage, counter-espionage, kidnapping and gunplay. In the quiet Scottish countryside of early WWII, a vacant cottage owned by a brilliant bombsight inventor attracts a houseful of unusual visitors, from a crashed British fighter pilot, a sarcastic London refugee, and a mysterious Scottish gentleman, to the cook, the butler and the inventor’s assistant, each of whom has a deeper side to their character – and their job description – than they wish to reveal.
