Director Sam Mendes, 1917 is a gripping World War I saga–told in one “continuous” take. The film focuses on Lance Corporals Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Schofield (George MacKay), British soldiers tasked with traversing miles of enemy territory in France in order to relay a warning of an impending German attack to a unit of fellow Brits. The mission is an especially personal one for Blake, as his brother is one of the 1,600 lives that hang in the balance. With Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Colin Firth, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
An Academy Award-winner for Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Cinematography (for Roger Deakins‘ incredible work), 1917 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 24th — giving you another chance to experience this most gripping of human dramas.
