Filmmaker Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, This Is 40) directs Trainwreck, starring and written by breakout comedic actress Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer”). Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s head by her rascal of a dad (Colin Quinn) that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo—enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment—but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something. The comedy Trainwreck also stars Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda Swinton and LeBron James.

Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman's point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it's a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

'Testament of Youth' traces WWI's grave effect on woman's life
From first to last, "Testament of Youth" sweeps you away. Unapologetically emotional and impeccably made in the classic manner, it tells the kind of potent, many-sided story whose unforeseen complexities can come only courtesy of a life that lived them all. Based on Vera Brittain's deeply felt 1933 memoir of her World War I experiences, a modern classic that has never gone out of print and kept Virginia Wolfe up all night reading it, "Testament of Youth" is an attempt to write history in terms of personal life that is wrenched out of its author's very soul. Only that way, Brittain wrote, "could I rescue something that might be of value, some element of truth and hope and usefulness, from the smashing up of my own youth by the War." Brittain's trademark fiery intensity and passionate attitude have been transferred intact to this film (finely adapted by screenwriter Juliette Towhidi and feelingly directed by James Kent) which seems to breathe with the writer's internal essence. Key to that success is the all-out performance by Sweden's Alicia Vikander, very much the actress of the moment after her charismatic work as the enigmatic Ava in "Ex Machina." She's thrown herself into this project unreservedly and pulled everyone else — including Kit Harington, Taron Egerton and Colin Morgan, the actors who play the men in her life — along with her. What makes Vera Brittain's story so exceptional is the fluid way all these elements in her life, the passionate feminism, the love story, the war years and what they led to, naturally flow together. The "Testament of Youth" we see is an exceptional romance, but it is a romance with a considerable amount on its mind, a romance with lessons for our time as much as for hers. - - - Kenneth Turan / Los Angeles Times - - -
