TESTAMENT OF YOUTH Trailer Starring GAME OF THRONES’ Kit Harrington

     April 23, 2015


Now that the film has already seen a release in the UK, it’s time for US audiences to get familiar with director James Kent’s new film Testament of Youth. The film is based on Vera Brittain’s First World War memoir of the same name and stars Alicia Vikander as Vera Brittain. Vikander is joined by Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington who plays her fiancé, Roland Leighton.

I’m not familiar with the source material but this seems like a handsomely photographed period piece that’s, as far as I can tell, competently executed on just about every level besides that as well. Check out the US version of Testament of Youth Trailer below. The film also stars Taron EgertonEmily WatsonHayley AtwellColin MorganJoanna ScanlanAlexandra RoachJonathan BaileyAnna ChancellorNicholas Le PrevostNicholas FarrellDominic West and Miranda Richardson.

Here’s the synopsis of Testament of Youth:

Intelligent and free-spirited Vera overcomes the narrow-mindedness of her conservative parents, winning a scholarship to Oxford. Entranced by her brother’s dashing friend Roland, who shares her literary aspirations, she plunges into an intoxicating romance. Blooming, in love and on the cusp of fulfilling her ambitions, Vera’s dreams are brutally shattered by the onset of war. When Roland and her brother ship out to the front, she abandons the cloistered environs of university life and volunteers as a nurse. Immediately confronted with the pitiless reality of the war’s victims, her life is irrevocably changed as she loses, one-by-one, the young men she held so dear.
