Synopsis

The year is 1917 and The Great War rages on. Two young British privates, Schofield and Blake, are given a task which seems to be impossible – they must make their way deep into enemy territory to deliver a message that could prevent 1600 soldiers from walking into a deadly trap. To make matters more complicated, Blake’s own brother is part of the unsuspecting regiment who are in danger. Filmed as one uninterrupted take and featuring some of Britain’s most revered actors, 1917 is a thrilling and inventive war epic that pushes the boundaries of immersive filmmaking.

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. "
