Lff 2017: ‘Journey’s End’ Review: Dir. Saul Dibb (2017)

9 October 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Journey’s End review: Saul Dibb directs an all-star British cast in this, the fifth screen adaptation of the famous Rc Sheriff play from the early twentieth century.

Journey’s End review by Paul Heath.

Journey’s End review

Bringing an updated version of the seminal 1928 play Journey’s End by Rc Sheriff to the screen, one which has had the likes of Laurence Olivier treading the boards in it over the years, and the four other adaptations that have appeared one the big and small screen in the decades since, is not an easy feat, but Saul Dibb’s 2017 version is totally worthy of it existence, and comes to the UK following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.

The story is set 100 years ago during the first world war, the German and British sides at a stalemate, a position they’ve been in for well over a year. »
