Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917.
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (CAPTAIN FANTASTIC's George MacKay) and Blake (GAME OF THRONES' 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—Blake’s own brother among them.
"Sam Mendes delivers the film of his career." - Times
"Startlingly literal theater of war." - Los Angeles Times
"1917" is a modern war classic and one of the best movies of the year." - New York Post
"What makes the vivid film such an astounding effort – and one of the year's best movies – is that it’s edited seamlessly as one continuous real-time take, following a couple of Brits through rat-infested trenches, sniper-filled towns and even empty battlefields where the Grim Reaper’s been busy yet danger still looms." - USA Today
