1917

Winner Golden Globe 2020 for Best Picture (Drama).

1917 is currently not screening at The Flicks.

Hard-hitting, immersive, and an impressive technical achievement, 1917 captures the trench warfare of World War I with raw, startling immediacy.

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.

Director Sam Mendes, has similarly taken top technology – and the best cinematography – to give us a different, equally compelling look at that cruel war, through the eyes of two ordinary soldiers asked to perform an extraordinary task.

1917 is a full-body exercise that will take quite a while to shake, and may even leave you gasping for breath
