Starring: Colin Morgan, Alicia Vikander

This British war drama is based on Testament Of Youth, the memoirs of Vera Brittain, which has been heralded as the most important literature on WWI.

Told from a woman's viewpoint, this is the true story of a lady whose brother and fiance enlist in the army and who ultimately puts her studies at university on hold to serve in a voluntary aid detachment in London, Malta and France.

Exquisitely filmed from a masterfully written script, every detail in production has been brilliantly reconstructed to the time. The magnificent score is memorable and adds to the depressing tone of the film.

Alicia Vikander who has a brilliant career ahead of her, is a natural as Brittain, showcasing all the essential feelings of a woman experiencing the evils of war.

Heart-wrenching at times, this tearjerker shows the aftermath of war rather than the actual battles being fought. The horrific casualties in hospital and on the battlefields leave nothing to the imagination. In an era when it was shameful not in register for war duty, young men were excited and oblivious to the dangers of war until it was too late.

Brittain who eventually became a writer and a pacifist argued: Is it honourable for men to join in warfare? Does anything transpire from war? One of the most important films in recent years, this must-see cinematic experience deserves must accolade.
