Sam Mendes, the Oscar winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his Golden Globe-winning World War I epic, 1917.
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers – Blake’s own brother among them.
This is an ambitious and masterfully executed cinematic experience that will stay in memories long after the credits roll.
