At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ 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. Sam Mendes returns to the big screen with the cinematic experience of the year as his ambitious and critically acclaimed 1917 takes the audience on a gruelling journey in real time.
