Anthony Minghella wrote and directed this award-winning adaptation of Michael Ondaatje's novel about a doomed and tragic romance set against the backdrop of World War II. In a field hospital in Italy, Hana, a nurse from Canada, is caring for a pilot who was horribly burned in a plane wreck; he has no identification and cannot remember his name, so he's known simply as Ã¢â‚¬Å“the English Patient,Ã¢â‚¬Ã¹ thanks to his accent. When the hospital is forced to evacuate, Hana determines en route that the patient shouldn't be moved far due to his fragile condition, so the two are left in a monastery to be picked up later. In time, Hana begins to piece together the patient's story from the shards of his memories. Starring, in alphabetical order: Colin Firth, Juliette Binoche, Kristin Scott Thomas, Naveen Andrews, Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe
