Best of British,
This review is from: Private Peaceful [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a must watch film, depicting rigid class structure, military brutality and the tragedy of war. Richard Griffiths is at his best, as is John Lynch, but the two leads Jack OConnoll and George McKay carry this film throughout. Set in rural Devon before and during WW1, it is a tale of simple family life, ripped apart by war. Realistic battle scenes and stunning locations all add to a remarkable film that has yet to receive the accolades that it deserves
Low budget it may be, but this is British film making at its unequaled best.
