BIRDSONG

PART 2 (OF 2)

This is an adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's best-selling novel about lovers torn apart by World War I. Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth) plays Stephen Wrayford, whose pre-war affair with Isabelle Azaire (Clemence Poesy, Harry Potter) has an enduring effect on him as he fights in the trenches.

Stephen and his men go over the top in one of the bloodiest battles ever recorded, the Battle of the Somme. Will he survive and will he be reunited with Isabelle, the Frenchwoman he loved before the war?
