Attend an Exclusive Preview Screening of 'Benediction' with a extended introduction by actor Jack Lowden in London on May 9th...
Terence Davies’ moving and lyrical portrait of the life of celebrated war poet Siegfried Sassoon. Terence Davies’ moving and lyrical portrait of the life of celebrated war poet Siegfried Sassoon In 1917, English war poet Siegfried Sassoon’s attempt at a conscientious objection leads him to being committed to a military sanatorium to recover from a more socially-acceptable ‘nervous breakdown’.
During this time he meets and mentors fellow poet and soldier Wilfred Owen, and a meaningful, tender relationship develops. In his beautiful, richly detailed film, Terence Davies delves into the significant moments of Sassoon’s life, exploring the poet’s post-war trauma, stifled sexuality and desire for redemption. Threaded with astute humour, Benediction is powered by a captivating performance from Jack Lowden as Sassoon, a haunting Peter Capaldi as an older Sassoon, and a scene-stealing Jeremy Irvine as a deliciously waspish Ivor Novello.
