Director Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty), inspired by the war stories of his grandfather, has created a potent, propulsive and stirring film, photographed to resemble a single take by veteran cinematographer Roger Deakins (Fargo, BladeRunner 2049). Two young British soldiers during WWI are sent on a perilous mission across enemy territory and no-man’s land to deliver an urgent message, hopefully preventing a massacre, to the commander of a platoon about to advance into a trap, a group that includes the messenger’s brother.
