The Guardians

The Guardians

Xavier Beauvois’ period drama goes some way to redressing the balance regarding the representation of women in films dealing with the First World War.

Natalie Baye is outstanding amongst a strong female cast, who detail the lives women led during the five-year conflict, and the challenges they faced.

Shot in a verité style, it eschews the usual look of a period drama. It’s a stunning achievement by the director of the acclaimed Of Gods and Men.
