In these troubled times, we need examples of heroism and charity more than ever. Ordinary stockbroker Nicholas Winton's selfless rescue of 669 mostly Jewish children from Prague before World War II is a good deed that continues to influence people all around the world to follow in his footsteps. Nicky's Family is a touching and powerful look at Sir Nicholas' story and the effect that it continues to have on people of all ages!
Winner of 13 U.S. Film Festival Audience Awards, Nicky's Family is a true phenomenon. The film has played for eighteen weeks and counting in Florida theaters, and continues to receive rave reviews and standing ovations from audiences nationwide! There is currently a worldwide campaign to award Sir Nicholas the Nobel Peace Prize, which was started by Czech students and boasts over 194,000 signatures thus far!
“A miracle. Called "Britain's Schindler", Nicholas Winton easily could be the subject of a big-screen Spielberg epic. "Nicky's Family" shows his incredible journey, and best of all, the very happy ending. Like those scrapbooks, it's just waiting to be discovered.” - Sioux City Journal
"Go see this one... True heroes do exist." - Movie Night Traffic Light
"A story of triumph. No matter how far you must drive to see this movie it will be decidedly worth every mile." - The Mackinac Center for Public Policy
