‘Private Peaceful’ (2012)    12 Rating

An ideal film to watch as we remember 100 years since the start of World War 1, ‘Private Peaceful’ is an adaptation of the brilliant best-selling novel by Michael Morpugo.  It tells the story of the unbreakable bond between two brothers during World War 1, in which they are transported from childhood innocence in the fields of Devon to the  violence of the battlefield in Flanders.  In the trenches they experience the brutal injustice of war, far removed from rural family life, and their rivalry for the beautiful Molly Monks.  Directed by Pat O’Connor and with an all-British cast including George MacKay, Jack O’Connell and  Maxine Peake, this is a powerful and emotional tale of injustice, love, heroism, and fierce family ties that will never be broken.
