  • Lovely War

    It's 1917, and World War I is at its zenith when Hazel and James first catch sight of each other at a London party. She's a shy and talented pianist; he's a newly minted soldier with dreams of becoming an architect. When they fall in love, it's immediate and deep – and cut short when James is shipped off to the killing fields.
  • Lovely War

    The full cast brings narratorial range and nuance to Berry's sweeping World War I epic, exploring giddy romance as well as the weary introspection of a generation lost in brutal trench warfare. Tender stolen moments between a solider boy and a piano girl lend universality to this heart-wrenching romance.
