Synopsis

Spanning 1900-1925, this is a loving adaptation of anti-war campaigner Vera Brittain’s classic memoir. Raised in a middle-class family in the English countryside, she successfully defies her parents and society norms by winning a scholarship to Oxford University. Her brother Edward introduces her to Roland, who shares her passion for literature and the two inevitably fall in love. However their lives are cruelly disrupted by the onset of World War One, both boys being sent to the front and Vera abandoning her studies to become a nurse. Confronted with the violent realities of war, we watch Vera adjust to the dramatic shifts in her life. With an impressive cast who all went on to stardom, this excellent drama captures the experiences of medical staff during the war as well as providing a portrait of feminism in the early 20th century.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
