Testament of Youth
Such a lovely movie, I thought that everything was done so well. There has been a collection of first world war shows on the television, all of which have been a bit stilted and overacted, with a local NZ production on currently being particularly cringe worthy. It certainly helped that Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones, was the male lead, and I thought both leads were compelling to watch. The moments of stillness, the subtle touch, the lingering look were all captured in a way that escapes many directors. And so nice to have a womans voice, a story that still resonates a hundred years later. A story as old as time.
A pleasant Sunday viewing - 4/5.
