A generation is lost to war in the first trailer for “A Testament of Youth,” based on the memoirs of pacifist Vera Brittain.
The budding romance is put to the test when Roland decides to enlist to fight as World War I breaks out. Vera herself is not left unscathed as she’s forced to delay getting her degree in order to work as a V.A.D. nurse.
“Testament of Youth” was the first of three memoirs Vera Brittain published during her lifetime. It was followed by “Testament of Friendship” and “Testament of Experience.”
“A Testament of Youth,” directed by James Kent, will be released in the UK on Jan. 2, 2015 and has no US release date yet.
