At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) 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 – with Blake’s own brother among them. Oscar winning director Sam Mendes directs his singular vision of World War 1 with the help of a stellar cast including Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch.
"An astonishing piece of filmmaking, portraying war with enormous panache. This is big-screen bravado, and then some." - Empire Magazine
