ANGELIKA’S NOTE

The stunning winner of 3 Academy Awards and 7 BAFTA awards - including Best Cinematography for both - 1917 is a masterpiece that reaches beyond the classic wartime genre. Written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns (LAST NIGHT IN SOHO, PENNY DREADFUL) and Sam Mendes (SKYFALL, AMERICAN BEAUTY) with direction from Mendes as well, 1917 stars Dean-Charles Chapman (THE KING, GAME OF THRONES) and George MacKay (CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, PETER PAN) as two soldiers handed the crucial task of delivering a message to prevent a battalion of 1600 soldiers from walking into a deadly trap. NPR raves that "[The filmmakers] set themselves a challenge for 1917, and met it in ways sure to be talked about by lovers of cinema for quite a while."

SYNOPSIS

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
