JOUR­NEY’S END (M) A war al­most fin­ished, and a fate al­ready sealed, UK, 107 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

In this wor­thy, if slightly stilted screen adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic 1928 stage play by R.C. Sher­riff, we are trans­ported to the trenches of Aisne in north­ern France as World War 1 is about to draw to a close. A small band of Bri­tish sol­diers are go­ing about their busi­ness as usual, in spite of know­ing deep down their next as­sign­ment has the mak­ings of a sui­cide mis­sion. The up­beat young­ster Raleigh (Asa But­ter­field) is the newest re­cruit to the com­pany, and is clearly too en­thu­si­as­tic to en­gage in com­bat for any­one’s good.
