At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay, Captain Fantastic) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman, HBO’s Game of Thrones), 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. Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty), and stunningly shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins (Blade Runner 2049, Skyfall) in what appears to be one long take, this engrossing epic also stars Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

"Mendes has made a film that feels wholly alive."
"[L]egendary cinematographer Roger Deakins (No Country for Old Men, Fargo, Blade Runner 2049) effectively drops the viewer in the center of the story and compels them to stay there, fully immersed in every muddy step, hunger pang, and rifle click."
"...a potent and unforgettable piece of cinema"
