This adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’ best-selling novel about lovers torn apart by World War I stars Eddie Redmayne ("The Pillars of the Earth") as Stephen Wraysford, whose pre-war affair with Isabelle Azaire (Clemence Poesy, Harry Potter) has an enduring effect on him as he fights in the trenches.
Part 1 — In 1910, Englishman Stephen Wraysford goes to France to study textile manufacturing and falls in love with a factory owner’s bewitching wife, Isabelle. Amid the shellfire of the Western Front in 1916, his memories of the past haunt him.
Part 2 — Stephen and his men go over the top in one of the bloodiest battles ever recorded, the Battle of the Somme. Will he survive and will he be reunited with Isabelle, the Frenchwoman he loved before the war?
