Movie Info

Winter 1939. Flamboyant Czech diplomat Jan Masaryk has fled to America to escape his recent past. Germany has invaded Czechoslovakia and Masaryk is now a man without a nation. In America, he tries to forget the personal and political betrayals he and his country have suffered--but these events shadow his every step. Having served as the Czechoslovak ambassador in London, Masaryk had failed to win the support of the British and could not avert the ruination of his country. With the help of Dr. Stein, a German immigrant and psychiatrist, and the beautiful writer Marcia Davenport, Masaryk tries to overcome his demons and relives the dramatic events leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War.

Critic Reviews for A Prominent Patient (Masaryk)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (4)

  • One would think there was ample material for a fascinating pre-war thriller, or at least a new historical take on the period, but the screenplay is missing a lot of pieces and the humdrum staging looks numbingly like jazzed-up Euro TV fare.

  • It's really hard to make the negotiations leading up to the Munich Agreement boring, yet that's just what "A Prominent Patient" achieves, and little else.

  • But even if we allow for such artistic liberty, the character of the German doctor who fled the Nazis and forces Masaryk to confront his demons is an unnecessary device only ramping up the bathos and incredulity.

  • Effective locations choices add to the atmosphere of the film - it's hard to imagine a more despairing piece of architecture than the exterior of the psychiatric institute. But the pacing of the story is stagnant.

    March 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The visuals add exactly the kind of polish that this prestige picture is aiming for, and although there are a few far-travelling accents in the supporting cast, the whole thing is anchored by the typically-assured Roden.
