Special Interview with “Into Film” - UK film and Education Charity

Into Film – the UK film and education charity which helps young people learn through and about film – has a great interview with Kit Harington which we have just released to share.  Kit talks about his role in new film Testament of Youth, which premiered last night at the BFI London Film Festival.

 

Kit sat down with teenage reporter Dorothy, who is a member of the charity’s Talent Development programme, which enables children and young people the chance to develop their passion for film and take part in film industry events.   

 

Also here is a photo of Kit and Dorothy from the interview to support the story.

First Poster For Testament Of Youth

09 October 2014 | Written by Helen O’Hara

The first volume of author Vera Brittain’s memoirs, Testament Of Youth, focuses on her experiences in World War I and has become something of a classic of the wartime literary genre. Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington star in the film adaptation for James Kent, and we have the first poster here.

TestamentOfYouth-Poster
Now if that isn’t a classic pose that signals romantical problems in wartime, we don’t know what is. There’s the train station, the rushing crowd and the impossibly handsome young lovers – Vera herself (Vikander) and fiance Roland (Harington) about to be torn apart as he heads to the Front and she takes up her wartme work as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse working in England, France and Malta.

Also starring are Taron Egerton as Brittain’s brother Edward, who introduces the lovers; Dominic West and Emily Watson as her parents, and support from the likes of Hayley Atwell, Anna Chancellor, Colin Morgan and Miranda Richardson. Director James Kent has done oodles of work on TV, notably on miniseries The White Queen, and makes his feature debut here. Testament Of Youth opens on January 16, 2015, but will be screening at the BFI London Film Festival this week.

[Did you ever think of going by Kit Catesby professionally?] ”I nearly did, but I thought it sounded too much like a 1950s talk-show host. I was close, actually! Sometimes I think, That would have been a cool name, but Kit Harington works.”

Vera Brittain’s beloved WWI memoir Testament of Youth is exquisitely realised in this moving and timely adaptation. Intelligent and free-spirited Vera overcomes the narrow-mindedness of her conservative parents, winning a scholarship to Oxford. Entranced by her brother’s dashing friend Roland, who shares her literary aspirations, she plunges into an intoxicating romance. Blooming, in love and on the cusp of fulfilling her ambitions, Vera’s dreams are brutally shattered by the onset of war. When Roland and her brother ship out to the front, she abandons the cloistered environs of university life and volunteers as a nurse. Immediately confronted with the pitiless reality of the war’s victims, her life is irrevocably changed as she loses, one-by-one, the young men she held so dear. Director James Kent makes an assured transition from television drama to feature film, effortlessly rendering the dramatic shift from the first flush of lyricism in the idyllic English countryside, to the stark verisimilitude of the battleground. Mingling innocent charm with dogged persistence, Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair and LFF entry Son of a Gun) is marvellous as the sharply perceptive Vera. Shining brightly, and lingering long in the mind afterwards, are the performances of three rising British stars – Kit Harington, Taron Egerton and Colin Morgan – who do collective justice to the memory of the ordinary heroes they portray.
