From the archive
This film was last shown on 20 January 2020
Based on a story told to Director Sam Mendes by his grandfather, 1917 tells the story of two young British soldiers, Schofield and Blake, who are given a seemingly impossible mission. 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.
An ambitious and innovative filming style – that sees the film played out as one, continuous shot – will leave you breathless and utterly absorbed.
