Check out the official trailer of Testament of Youth, the upcoming drama movie directed by James Kent and starring Alicia Vikander:
TESTAMENT OF YOUTH
Remembrance for a lost generation.
In a world of tradition, education would change her life.
Love would change her world.
But war would change everything….
Based on one of the most powerful memoirs of our time.
A testament of love. A testament of hope.
“Vera Brittain, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she falls in love with her brother’s close friend Roland Leighton as they go to university to pursue their literary dreams. But the First World War is looming and as the boys leave for the front Vera realises she cannot sit idly by as her peers fight for their country, so volunteers as a nurse. She works tirelessly, experiencing all the grief of war, as one by one her closest friends are all killed and the pillars of her world shattered. But, an indefatigable spirit, Vera endures, rediscovers love and returns to Oxford, irrevocably changed, yet determined to create a world in which such a war can never take place again.”
I guess it’s a moving story… but am not really interested in seeing it. What about you? are you hooked by the trailer?
Besides Alicia Vikander, the cast also includes Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell, and Anna Chancellor.
The film should be released sometime in 2015.
