Testament of Youth ❤️ a movie review 🎬

March 4, 2018

There are some fantastic movies available to watch on Netflix. We had some very snowy days over the past week and it was a perfect opportunity to look at the movies on Netflix more closely.

I love movies which tell a real story, and this was one of those. Amazing actors, super scenery and a story which is gripping from beginning to the end.

The Movie –

Testament of Youth is a story of love, loss and strength during the first World War. Based on the book Testament of Youth written by Vera Brittain, a true story of her life.

Vera Brittain is an intelligent, strong willed young lady from a well to do family. A loving brother, a handsome fiancee, and a place at Oxford University. Then World War changes everything. The men she loves all head to war, and are all lost one by one.

A true story of strength and courage.

Verdict –

I was extremely touched by this movie.

Alicia Vikander plays Vera Brittain amazingly.

After the movie I googled the real Vera. Such a heartbreaking story.

It is now available to watch on Netflix. Not to be missed! I look forward to reading the book.
