Part of Member Screenings
Director Sam Mendes, actors George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman, screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and cinematographer Roger Deakins are expected to attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre, and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917. At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.
