Directed by Sam Mendes and shot in one hallucinatory single take by masterful cinematographer Roger Deakins, 1917 is a haunting war drama and an audacious technical feat. At the height of World War I, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a terrible mission: to warn a battalion of 1,600 men – including Blake’s own brother – of an upcoming ambush. Racing across enemy territory, the pair must give their all to stop their comrades falling prey to a deadly trap.
