Based on R.C. Sherriff’s celebrated 1928 play Journey’s End
March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches of norther France, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin).
With a German offensive imminently approaching, the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) use food and the memories of their lives before the war to distract themselves, while Stanhope soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with the dread of the inevitable.
A young officer, Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), arrives fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting – not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections.
Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer…
"In the year that we commemorate the centenary of the First World War drawing to a close, Journey's End couldn't be a more timely drama."
"Powered by memorable performances and Dibb's sobering deconstruction of the individuals who fought for their country, the engrossing Journey's End is a hard-nosed, hard-hitting centennial tribute to Britain's heroes."
"Few stage staples from 90 years ago would easily translate to the screen today, yet R.C. Sherriff's once near-ubiquitous "Journey's End" proves potent as ever in this sturdy new adaptation ..."
