Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "It’s a handsomely mounted, resolutely old-school work: the epitome of 'well crafted'....Led by Vikander’s star-making performance, the film mines a real depth of feeling." - 01/11/2015 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Kent's craft and Vikander’s exquisite talent will ensure that the author’s memories live in the minds of a fresh generation..." - 01/09/2015 Empire


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Anchored by an extraordinary performance from actress Alicia Vikander, James Kent’s TESTAMENT OF YOUTH bears comparison to many other superbly mounted costume dramas backed by the BBC..." - 06/05/2015 RogerEbert.com


3 stars out of 5 -- "This is World War I from a woman’s point of view, a different perspective than we usually see. It’s the story of someone who doesn’t fight...but for whom the horrors of war are just as vivid and devastating." - 06/11/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"TESTAMENT OF YOUTH sweeps you away. Unapologetically emotional and impeccably made in the classic manner, it tells the kind of potent, many-sided story whose unforeseen complexities can come only courtesy of a life that lived them all." - 06/04/2015 Los Angeles Times
