Program Notes

Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917.

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.

Critics' Praise

“The overall impact of 1917 is simply breathtaking, horrifying, appalling. It offers a compelling version of what a day in the war might have felt like for two soldiers.”
– Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

“The tale unfolds with considerable sensitivity, offering plenty of haunting images while capturing the chaos and fear of trench warfare – especially through the eyes of MacKay, in a genuine breakout performance.”
– Brian Lowry, CNN

“Tense, exhilarating and profoundly moving.”
– Caryn James, BBC
