Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman's point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it's a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

Production Notes.

The film, based on Vera Brittain's bestselling memoir, is a signal achievement for director James Kent, who makes his feature debut after a long career in television. [...] Kent crafts an incredibly moving tale of the tragic loss of lives of those cut off in the flower of their youth.
