Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty), brings his singular vision to his World War I epic shot in one take. At the height of the conflict, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them. 1917 won 7 prizes at the BAFTA Awards (including Best Film and Best Director) and 3 Oscars (including Best Cinematography) this year.
