CNC008: 1917 takes place on April 6 of that year, which was both Good Friday and the day the United States entered World War I. The movie follows the impossible mission of two British soldiers sent to save their comrades from a trap. Fr. Chip Hines and Dom Bettinelli discuss the film’s amazing cinematography, it’s compelling story of honor, duty, and self-sacrifice, and what war movies like this have to do with a Christian call to peace.
