SynopsisBased on a World War I memoir by Vera Brittain, the Testament of Youth is a moving story of a young English woman (Vera Brittain) who postpones her studies at Oxford University and goes on to serve as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse during the war times. From here starts her searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to war and remembrance of her loved ones. After the war ends, Vera returns to Oxford to study history and later goes on to become a writer, feminist and a pacifist.
This powerful story is a classic testimony of a war from a woman`s point of view. Directed by James Kent, this film stars Alicia Vikander in the role of Vera Brittain, along with the charming Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones fame) and Colin Morgan.
