Set in the fields of Devon and the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, two brothers fall for the same girl while contending with the pressures of their feudal family life, the war, and the price of courage and cowardice.
Private Peaceful details the gritty rural lives and loves of Tommo and Charlie - two young brothers - and their poor Devonshire family from 1909 until 1916, when the outbreak of war destroys their country idyll. Both join up (one under age) leaving behind the beautiful Molly who is the love of both their lives. The young men survive gas attacks, shelling, German troops and the appalling deaths of their close friends. But one thing they cannot escape is summary military justice.Written by

a war film
About family, love , brotherhood and about death. And hope. And, again, about family. A beautiful - bitter film about choices and about the answers to them. Or just that kind of film about , in simple and honest manner , life. I admitt, the basic reason fom me , to see the film was the presence of Jack O' Connell . But the film could not be reduced at his performance. All is familiar but the message of the movie deserves attention. For a precise waz to define the profound truth. And for a good story in which each level is well crafted.
