Beautiful/Tragic story

on 5/6/2012

I found this made for TV film to be the most moving film I have seen in a long time. It was beautifully written by David Haig and beautifully filmed. In my humble opinion everyone in this film gave an outstanding performance. The relaionship between David Haig and Daniel Radcliffe on screen was wonderful. I felt the father/son relaionship was so rich and touching, they could have been father/son in real life. I personally feel that is also one of the best performances I have ever seen from Mr. Radcliffe. I higly recommend this film, not just for the actors who are in it (David,Dan and Kim) but because this is an extremely important story that I think everyone should see. I also recommend having a big box of kleenax on hand as well, this film will make you cry!

Product Overview

Its 1915 and World War I has been declared. Aged only 17, Kipling's son, like most of his generation, is swept up in the enthusiasm to fight the Germans, a mood stoked vigorously by his father. Jack is cripplingly short sighted and the army has rejected him twice, rendering him too myopic even for an army suffering thousands of casualties a week and desperate for recruits. Yet Rudyard is undeterred, determined that his son should go to the front, like countless other sons, and fight for the values that he, Kipling, espouses so publicly. Using his fame and influence, Kipling persuades Lord Roberts, on his death bed, to get Jack a commission in the Irish guards. This intervention is barely tolerated by Carrie and daughter Elise (Carey Mulligan), as they disagree that Jack is fit to fight and fear for his safety on the front line. Jack is instantly popular with his troop he is a great leader and trains tirelessly to overcome the disability that is his eyesight. Six months later Jack sails to France as a lieutenant. Jack went missing in action during the Battle of Loos and his mother and father carried out an increasingly desperate search for him, spanning many years and many miles.
