Time is the enemy

Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay : Captain Fantastic, Pride) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman : Game Of Thrones) 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.

REVIEWS

★★★★★ The Guardian
Sam Mendes turns western front horror into a single-shot masterpiece

★★★★ Empire
The sound design is off the hook — biplanes roar over us, deafeningly. The cinema seats shake. Much of the action is nail-biting.
