A rare gem of a film
29 November 2018 | by lmiller-07085See all my reviews

Anyone who believes quality can only be achieved by a big budget needs to think again. This film is a rare gem. All facets of it - the intelligent script, the sumptuous photography, the heartfelt performances - have been expertly perfected and absolutely nothing is wasted. The brooding foreboding of the WW1 trench scenes contrast with a colourful and true to period depiction of a Bohemian Edwardian life as the young poet, Wilfred Owen, finds affirmation both in his poetry and his personal identity as a gay man. Director, Richard Weston, proves he can deliver on a vision. He is a talent to watch.
