In our first episode of 2020, writer/director Sam Mendes wants to take us back to 1917 where he immerses the viewer in the Great War and tells the story of two young soldiers who are given the impossible task of reaching another unit to warn them of a trap that could potentially wipe out hundreds of their men. Depicted as though a single take, the film includes stunning visuals and offers modern insight into our historical understanding. This week on the show, we welcome back Seeing and Believing’s Kevin McLenithan to talk about the nature of honour, the importance of individual stories and our Top 3 Movie Moments of 2019.
