To commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI Nayland Cinema presents Journey’s End: RC Sherriff famously drew on his own experiences in the trenches to write Journey’s End; adapted by Simon Reade and directed by Saul Dibb this 2017 version is a trip back down into the Stygian depths of a dugout where six men wait out their final days.
Journey’s End is set in March 1918 as C-Company, led by a war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin) arrives in northern France to take its turn in the front-line trenches. Told that a German offensive is imminent Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky whilst the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before war. They are joined by Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), a young new officer fresh out of training excited about his first real posting, and a chance to serve under Stanhope. Raleigh's naivety serves as a stark contrast to the other men's impending fear as the tension rises and the attack draws ever closer.
Refreshments and bar will be available from 7pm and during the interval.
