From James Kent, the director of 'The Aftermath', 'Testament of Youth', starring Alicia Vikander ('Ex Machina') and Kit Harington ('Game of Thrones'), is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman’s point of view.
A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it’s a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.
