Golden Globe-Nominated War Drama '1917' Is Based on a True Story of Bravery

By

The 2020 Golden Globes are almost here, and the competition is fierce. The most buzzed-about category is Best Picture, Drama. The contenders are: 1917, The Irishman, Joker, Marriage Story, and The Two Popes. And many people feel like it's 1917 up against The Irishman. Chances are, you probably streamed The Irishman over Thanksgiving break — but did you watch war flick 1917? While The Irishman is a gorgeously-written gangster drama that earned much acclaim, some think the epic WWI story will be the film that earns the award.

A quick summary of what 1917 is all about.

Directed, produced, and co-written by Sam Mendes, 1917 is a war drama that focuses on two young British soldiers who are fighting in World War I. These soldiers are given orders to deliver an important message to the 2nd Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment: They need to call off an attack on the Germans because it's been discovered that the German Army basically faked out the British Army in retreating to the Hindenburg Line and are planning on ambushing the 2nd Battalion.
