Private Peaceful is based on the brilliant bestselling novel by Michael Morpurgo.
It is the story of the unbreakable bond between two brothers, from the innocence of their childhood in the fields of Devon to the violence of the battlefields of Flanders.
In the trenches they experience the brutal injustice of war, far removed from rural family life and their rivalry for the love of the beautiful Molly Monks.
Directed by Pat O'Connor (Dancing at Lughnasa), with an all-British cast, Private Peaceful is a powerful and emotional tale of injustice, love, heroism and fierce family ties that will never be broken.
Starring George MacKay (How I Live Now, Sunshine on Leith), Jack O'Connell (300, Skins), Alexandra Roach (The Iron Lady, One Chance), Maxine Peake (Silk, Shameless), Frances de la Tour (Hugo, Alice in Wonderland), John Lynch (Sliding Doors, The Fall) and in his last film the incomparable Richard Griffiths (Harry Potter, History Boys).
