Testament of Youth (12A) is showing at the Connaught Cinema and Studio, Worthing from Friday January 23rd to Thursday February 12th.
Rising star Alicia Vikander leads an outstanding cast in Vera Brittain’s much-loved memoir of love and war. Bright, spirited young feminist Vera Brittain (Alicia Vikander) has her whole life ahead of her in the spring of 1914. She defies the wishes of her conservative parents (Dominic West, Emily Watson) to seek a place at Oxford. But her dreams are shattered by the outbreak of WWI. Her brother Edward (Taron Egerton) and their friends Victor (Colin Morgan) and Roland (Kit Harington) all enlist.
So Vera sacrifices her education to become a nurse, falling urgently in love with Roland as war engulfs their generation. One of the defining memoirs of its time, Brittain’s powerful and personal witness testimony has touched the hearts of millions. Having given superb performances in A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina, Alicia Vikander takes her first leading role in this timely new adaptation. The excellent supporting cast includes Game of Thrones star Kit Harington.
Running time: 130 minutes.
Show times: Thursday February 12th at 8.30 pm.
