Testament of Youth

Rated PG-13 129 minutes 2015

Actress Alicia Vikander puts this inspiring historical war drama/character study on the map with her performance as real-life writer Vera Brittain, an anti-war feminist whose WWI experiences as a battlefield nurse shape her skeptical outlook in the same manner as her frustrations with the British higher education system, which generally frowned on females going to Oxford. Vikander’s acting is matched by the writing – by Juliette Towhidi, adapting the memoir by Brittain – and high production values, although there’s very little combat action. It’s the story of a woman’s transformation, not necessarily soldiers’ ordeals. James Kent directs. Costarring Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, and Emily Watson (129 min.).
