Movies, Testament Of Youth  •  By  •  Comments Off on Alicia to Play Vera Brittain in Biopic ‘A Testament of Youth’

DAILYMAIL – Alicia Vikander, the fast-rising Swedish-born actress, will portray World War I writer and pacifist Vera Brittain in a film based on her seminal memoir A Testament Of Youth.

It is about the generation — including Brittain’s brother, fiancé and other close friends — who lost their lives during the Great War.

The movie — which is being produced by David Heyman and BBC Films — will go before cameras in the spring to be ready for a Remembrance Sunday release next year, which also marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the war.

Brittain’s book also chronicles her own battles with her father over her determination to go to university, as her brother had.

By 1915, she felt compelled to do what she could to help the war effort, so Brittain (the mother of Liberal Democrat politician Shirley Williams), joined the Voluntary Aid Detachment to tend those who had been wounded at the front.

But more than anything, it’s a heart-breaking story of the once-gilded youth hurled into what war poet Wilfred Owen called the ‘scorching cautery’ of war.

INDIEWIRE – Sometimes neophyte actresses come along who fizzle out after a couple of early promising roles. And then there are those who, from practically the first glimpse we get of them, we just know are going to be big, and are going to be around for a while. Alicia Vikander, a no-brainer inclusion on our On the Rise list from March 2012, definitely falls into the latter category, making a vivid impression first in her feature debut “Pure,” and then breaking internationally with the one-two punch in the corset of “A Royal Affair” and “Anna Karenina.”

On Saturday morning the actress jetted in to the Marrakech Film Festival ostensibly as part of its Scandinavian tribute, but also ended up picking the Best Actress award for her role in the terrific “Hotell,” (review here) her reunion with “Pure” director Lisa Langseth. We were lucky enough to get to talk to Vikander (who despite being just off an intercontinental flight having wrapped shooting on “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” the day before, couldn’t have looked fresher if she’d bathed in dew) about the “Hotell”, her breakout process, and the packed and exciting upcoming slate that will see her in both a multiplex and an arthouse cinema near you very soon.

So you’ve just finished shooting “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” after a string of smaller films. What are your criteria for choosing projects?
Mostly I try to work with great filmmakers. It’s difficult to find good scripts sure, but it’s also so much about the vision and the person that’s gonna make the film…

And the experience that you’re going to have for however many months?
Yeah, you’re gonna work so tight with people. It’s quite a magical experience when you film, when you get together, when the whole machinery works and you’re in a good crowd. So I think that has been one of the priorities among the filmmakers [I’ve worked with so far]. And then I usually go for roles that scare me a bit, that I’m a bit frightened to take on because maybe it takes me out of my comfort zone. Something new that I haven’t done before. And here I think I had longed for something which was not… I had mostly done dramas, so I did “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” [as a change] I really enjoyed [Guy Ritchie’s] previous films and he has a very specific style so there’s a humor to it but it’s more like an irony. I play German car mechanic from East Berlin who helps the boys [Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer].
