Journey’s End (12A)
UK/2017/108mins/12a Dir: Saul Dibb With: Sam Claflin, Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield
In the trenches of World War I, youthful new recruit Lieutenant Raleigh has pulled strings to join his childhood hero Captain Stanhope on the front line. But Stanhope is horrified by Raleigh’s arrival into the tension and claustrophobia of the officers’ dugout, where they are anticipating a massive German advance. Altered almost beyond recognition by his years at the front, Stanhope is sustained only by one thought: that when the war is over he can return to his beloved, Raleigh’s sister Margaret. RC Sheriff’s classic 1928 play is adapted with ambition and sensitivity, informed by modern psychological insights setting its gaze on the harrowing costs of war.
