Based on the popular book by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse), Private Peaceful is a classic rite of passage story. The story follows two brothers and the exuberance and pain of their teenage love for the same girl, the pressures of their feudal family life, the horrors and folly of war, and the ultimate price of courage and cowardice.Reminiscent of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Private Peaceful is a gritty and realistic tale of love and death set in the fields of Devon and the Word War 1 battlefields of Flanders, giving us a heart-breaking glimpse of the way we once lived and still die. Starring Richard Griffiths in one of his last movie roles before his death earlier this year.
