Synopsis:

Beautifully acted dramatisation of Vera Brittain's memoir that still packs a punch

" an exquisitely composed portrayal of the despair and futility of World War I as seen from the rarely revealed viewpoint of an idealistic young woman."

"This is no dusty history piece or judgemental look back at the past but a fresh, immediate, personal testimony that speaks across the ages."

"Alicia Vikander is not only drop-dead gorgeous, she is as good an actress as I've ever seen, worth the price of admission alone. Almost hopelessly romantic, there was not one slow moment in this film. On a scale of 10, I'd like to give this an 11."
