Whether you watch from the edge of your seat, or behind your hands, it’ll be hard to miss British filmmaker Sam Mendes' note-perfect direction of this urgent, yet sensitive WWI drama. Aided by deservedly Oscar-winning cinematography from the UK’s Roger Deakins and an exquisitely propulsive, perilous and poignant script co-written by Scotland’s Krysty Wilson-Cairns.





In the midst of WWI, two British soldiers - Lance Corporal Schofield (George MacKay) and Lance Corporal Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) - are tasked with crossing enemy lines to deliver a message that their fellow comrades, including Blake’s own brother (Richard Madden), are about to walk into a trap.
