Journey's End film release

Scene from Journey's End, 2018 film version

The long- awaited screen adaptation of R C Sherriff’s famous play Journey’s End is to be released in cinemas on 2 February 2018.

R C Sherriff was a noteworthy playwright and screenwriter who was born in Hampton Wick in 1896. Click here for further information.

The pre-publicity for the film reads:

Journey’s End takes us to the front lines of the First World War, where a company of British soldiers awaits a German attack after being effectively abandoned by their commanders.

Led by Captain Stanhope, who frequently turns to drink to ease his shattered nerves, they know their chances of survival are slim. But in spite of that, young recruit Raleigh is determined to see them through – not least because Stanhope is his sister’s fiancé.

An all-star cast heads into the trenches in this new adaptation of Journey’s End, including Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield and Toby Jones.”
