Sam, Pippa and the team are truly delighted for this recognition, during Sam's acceptance speech he commented on how huge it is for the movie to win and encouraged audiences to see it in the cinema,"its difficult to make movies without big movie stars in the lead, and get people to come and see it in a cinema and I really hope this means people will turn up and see this on the big screen, for which it was intended."
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.
