1917

1917

April 6th, 1917: As a regiment assembles to wage war deep in enemy territory, two soldiers — Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake — receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades — including Blake’s own brother.

Director Sam Mendes‘ (SKYFALL, JARHEAD, AMERICAN BEAUTY) latest took home three Oscars in 2020, including Cinematography, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects. Starring Dean-Charles Chapman, Stuart MacKay, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Madden.

“The film is thrilling, moving on effectively from one shocking set piece to another, studding the narrative too with starry cameos.” (London Evening Standard)

“War is much on the minds of people right now, and “1917” is a good reminder, flaws and all, of what that really entails.” (Arizona Republic)
