Testament Of Youth

This British movie came out last year. It’s set in the WWI era and was neatly timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War. It’s a biopic of sorts based on a memoir of the same name by British writer Vera Brittain.

Brittain’s book was published in 1933 and recalls how her dream of studying English Literature with her fiance Roland Leighton at Oxford was derailed by the start of the war and the terrible hardship that followed.

Testament of Youth screens at RPL Theatre Thursday Aug. 20 and Saturday Aug. 22 at 7 p.m., and Friday Aug. 21 and Sunday Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. Here’s the trailer
