This is a stunning portrayal of one of our nation's finest poets
5 November 2018 | by hilsaxSee all my reviews

Watching this film on the centenary of Owen's death was incredibly moving and yet the director and cast managed to get over the fun that can sometimes co-exist with horror. The relationship with Sassoon is explored in detail, showing the various aspects and dynamics as Owen goes from being the acolyte at the door to the respected poet. A fitting tribute.
