Opening in L.A. and NYC this weekend is director James Kent’s Testament of Youth. The film is based on Vera Brittain’s First World War memoir of the same name and stars Alicia Vikander as Vera Brittain and Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington as her fiancé, Roland Leighton. As the film progresses you see the characters’ youthful dreams shattered by the onset of war and the demolition of a generation due to WWI. It’s a powerful look at the First World War and I recommend checking it out when you can. Testament of Youth also stars Taron Egerton, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell, Colin Morgan, Joanna Scanlan, Alexandra Roach, Jonathan Bailey, Anna Chancellor, Nicholas Le Prevost, Nicholas Farrell, Dominic West and Miranda Richardson. For more on the film, watch the trailer.
Last week I landed an exclusive video interview with Kit Harington. While I’ll be posting what he had to say about making Testament of Youth this week, today I’ve got him playing “Save or Kill”. If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value. Han Solo or Indiana Jones – If you were told you could only save one and the other would be erased from existence, who would you pick?
