Vera Brittain’s 1933 celebrated war memoir realised by a wonderful cast, sophisticated direction and a knockout performance from Vikander. Alongside Vikander, Harington gets time off from Game of Thrones to good effect. Sensitive treatment of the themes of loss, feminism, the struggles of those at the Front as well as those at home imbue the film with an integrity many war films lack.
