Testament of Youth – Video Review

Testament Of Youth is a true coming-of-age story set around the First World War and is based on the classic memoir of British writer Vera Brittain.

The story starts in 1914, shortly before the war, and follows the young and spirited Vera through days spent with her loving brother and friends, a burgeoning love affair, and her determination to study at Oxford, against her parents’ wishes.

But when fighting begins, her own life and the lives of her loved ones are turned upside down forever.

Watch my video review to find out why Testament Of Youth is a triumph of restrained and lyrical cinema with a superlative performance at its core!

Testament Of Youth is in UK cinemas on 16 January 2015.
