But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a ‘war room’ and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden
struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends with his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.
COMING SOON: 13th November: Journey’s End Journey’s End is a British film adaptation of the play Journey’s End by R. C. Sherriff. Written by Simon Reade and directed by Saul Dibb, it is the fifth film adaptation of the play. The film was screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. The Plot: The film is set in northern France in March 1918 as C Company, led by Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin) arrives to take its turn in the front line. Told that a German offensive is imminent, Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky while the other officers (Paul Bettany, Tom Sturridge and Stephen Graham), and their cook (Toby Jones) attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before the war. They are joined in the trenches by Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), a new young officer fresh out of training who is excited about his first real posting and the chance to serve under his schoolboy hero Stanhope. Raleigh’s naïve enthusiasm contrasts with the other men’s mounting fear as the tension rises and the attack draws ever closer.
