10 Stunning Stills From 1917 (2019)

Sam Mendes’ critically acclaimed 1917 stars George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman as Lance Corporals Schofield and Blake, respectively. The film also features guest performances from Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Richard Madden, Andrew Scott, and Daniel Mays. But the American Beauty director’s newest film is most noted for its Academy Award-winning cinematography.

1917 is filmed to look like it’s shot in a single continuous take, though a few cuts are hidden throughout the film. The film follows Blake and Schofield as they face an impossible task: they must cross enemy territory to deliver a message to a troop of 1600 men – including Blake’s brother – not to attack the next day. 

Here are ten of the film’s most beautiful stills.
