Cinematique Presents "Testament Of Youth"

Jul 24, 2015

Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war, and remembrance based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, starring Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina). Brittain's novel has become the classic testimony for WWI from a woman's point of view. This adaptation presents the searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again. It's a film about young love, the futility of war, and how to make sense of the darkest times. (PG-13, 2 hours 9 minutes)

Monday- Friday, August 3-7, 7 pm

"Somehow, Vikander sells it all, not with braying and big gestures, but with vulnerability, sincerity and the sort of ethereal realness that can't be qualified. More, please, more."- Tom Long, Detroit News

"Vikander crisply holds the screen as a naive rebel transformed by unspeakable suffering into a mature, independent young woman who remains open to the possibility of a new love and rebuilt England."- Ella Taylor, NPR
