Testament of Youth (Cert 12A)
Dir: James Kent UK 2014 130 mins
This adaptation of Vera Brittain’s much-loved autobiography gives a powerful and moving account of how the first world war cut through the lives of a whole generation. Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Shirley Williams’s mother Vera Brittain was about to go up to Oxford to read English when the war broke out, but when her fiancé and her brother enlist, she opts instead to become a volunteer nurse, working on the Western Front. A story of love, loyalty and loss, beautifully told.
An all-star cast includes Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Haley Atwell, Miranda Richardson and Anna Chancellor
