Vera Brittain’s First World War memoir, Testament of Youth, has been reimagined as a film. It is a story of love, war and remembrance.
Published in the 1933, her memoirs tell of Vera Brittain's experiences as a nurse between 1914-18 and explores how her morals and ideals were shaped by her wartime experience. The film will open in cinemas on January 16 and stars Kit Harrington, Alicia Vikanda, Colin Morgan and Taron Egerton.
Ms Vikanda described it as "an amazing story... a very important film, a story that we need to shine a light on."
London Live's Jake Tupman was at the premiere to speak to the big names on their big night, including Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington who discussed his role as an optimistic writer who heads into the war. He also explains why once he had to catch a plane while his head was dripping with blood.
Also joining Jake on the red carpet was Jonathan Bailey.
