Journey’s End [12a] Sun. June 17, 17:35

Journey’s End is a British film adaptation of the play Journey’s End by R. C. Sherriff. Written by Simon Reade and directed by Saul Dibb, it is the fifth film adaptation of the play, following Journey’s End (1930), The Other Side (1931), Aces High (1976), and a 1988 BBC TV film. The film was screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

An outstanding cast savours performing a play that has stood the test of time. Avoiding sentimentality, this is a valuable rejoinder to those who would sugar-coat mass slaughter. Full review
