An exclusive screening of Journey’s End will take place at The Picturehouse, Exeter, on Sunday 14th January 2018, almost three weeks before the general release date (2nd February 2018).

After the screening, there will be a Q&A session with the Somerset-based film producer Guy de Beaujeu, who is hosting the event as a fundraiser for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the British Army’s national charity.

Journey’s End is the big screen revival of R. C. Sherif’s 1928 play, telling the story of British soldiers struggling to survive in the trenches during WW1. The all-star cast, including Sam ClaflinAsa ButterfieldPaul Bettany, and Toby Jones, are already receiving rave reviews. Journey’s End captures the emotions, struggles, and camaraderie of trench life during the First World War as part of the British commemoration of the WWI centenary.

Somerset-based film producer, Guy de Beaujeu, is available to talk about his decision to re-create this story in the week prior to the screening of the film.
