Benjamin Britten - Peace and Conflict, a film by Tony Britten / Alex Lawther as the young Benjamin Britten; Narrated by John Hurt [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Tony Britten's moving and thought-provoking feature-length docu-drama tells the story of the pacifism at the core of Britten's life and work. Extraordinary young actor Alex Lawther plays the part of Holt, a teenage pupil at Gresham's School, set on a career as a composer while struggling to equate communism with pacifism. The drama is framed by commentary from friends and historians, and performances by artists including James Gilchrist, Iain Burnside, and the Benyounes String Quartet. Legendary actor John Hurt narrates and appears in this radically new film testament.
