Testament of Youth- Moving, affecting and memorable,
This review is from: Testament of Youth [DVD] (DVD)
Testament of Youth , starring Cheryl Campbell as Vera Brittain,is quite simply superb.
This very moving and affecting true story became a bestselling book when the series was shown originally, and no wonder. Vera Brittain's struggle to get a university education in the face of opposition from her father, and the subsequent devastating effects of World War 1 are skilfully told. It would take a hard heart not to be moved by this, and Cheryl Campbell is superb as Vera Brittain. I can't understand why it has not been made available before on DVD.
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys biography, or who is interested in the First World War. The book is well worth reading too.
Vera Brittain was the mother of Shirley Williams, Baroness Williams of Crosby.
