BIRDSONG

PART 1 (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.

In 1910, Englishman Stephen Wraysford goes to France to study textile manufacturing and falls in love with a factory owner’s bewitching wife, Isabelle. Amid the shellfire of the Western Front in 1916, his memories of the past haunt him.
