Testament of Youth

Testament of Youth

BBC Films produces this very BBC-ish adaptation of Vera Brittain's famed World War I memoir. Alicia Vikander (the sexy fembot from Ex Machina) stars as the single-minded Brittain, determined to attend Oxford circa 1914. Unfortunately, The Great War breaks out, derailing her progressive academic plans. When dreamy classmate Roland (Kit Harington from "Game of Thrones") joins the army, our proto-feminist heroine volunteers as a nurse. It's at a frontline hospital in France that Vera comes to realize the brutal impact of war on her generation. The film is too quiet and low-key about its rather obvious moral (war is bad), but the production is handsomely mounted, and the acting is passionate. FULL REVIEW: BBC drama looks at World War I through a darker lens by Devin D. O’Leary (7/9/2015). 129 minutes PG-13.
