Directed by Sam Mendes and shot in one hallucinatory single take by masterful cinematographer Roger Deakins, 1917 is both a haunting, hard-hitting 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 British battalion of 1,600 men – including Blake’s own brother – of an upcoming ambush. Racing against time across enemy territory, the pair must give their all to prevent their comrades from walking into a deadly trap. With Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott and Richard Madden.
