At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic‘s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of ThronesDean-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 – Blake’s own brother among them.

Sam Mendes delivers the film of his career by mashing up the survivalist thrills of The Revenant with the helter-skelter mayhem of a shoot’em’up video game, and setting it during the Great War.
The Times
‘Once Upon a Time on the Western Front’, as you could subtitle Sam Mendes’s nerve-fraying rollercoaster of a war movie, is a simple men-on-a-mission dressed up with all the technical bells and whistles at the director’s disposal.
Time Out
1917 is a modern war classic and one of the best movies of the year.
