Journey's End (12A)

Saul Dibb | 2018 | UK | 106’

Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield, and Paul Bettany star in this tense drama about a group of British soldiers during the First World War, in this new adaptation of R.C. Sherriff's classic play. Waiting is the name of the game in the trenches at Mont Saint-Quentin, where, over a few days, a group of exhausted and resigned infantry officers and enlisted men try to keep their heads down before an inevitable major German offensive. Journey's End concentrates on these citizen soldiers and the incredible stress they are subject to. Action, when it comes, is quick and brutal, but director Dibb fixes his eye firmly on the intricate psychology that ties this group of men together. A timely reminder of the true cost of a terrible conflict.
