JOUR­NEY’S END

Indwe - - Dinner & A Movie -

March, 1918. C-com­pany ar­rives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in north­ern France led by the war-weary Cap­tain Stan­hope (Sam Claflin). A Ger­man of­fen­sive is im­mi­nent, and the of­fi­cers (Paul Bet­tany, Stephen Gra­ham and Tom Stur­ridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) dis­tract them­selves in their dugout with talk of food and the lives they left be­hind. Stan­hope, mean­while, soaks his fear in whisky, un­able to deal with his dread of the in­evitable. A young of­fi­cer, Raleigh (Asa But­ter­field), has just ar­rived, 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.
