Blighty 1927

102 mins United Kingdom Director. Adrian Brunel

A different take on the Great War, this film focuses on the effects on those left behind. Set on the Home Front, far from the battlefields, the film portrays the mixture of suffering and loss, joy and hope experienced by an English family, from the start of the conflict to the first anniversary of Armistice.
