Ford Madox Ford's Edwardian love story PARADE'S END is lavishly adapted for the screen by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Sir Tom Stoppard. Benedict Cumberbatch (WAR HORSE) and Rebecca Hall (THE AWAKENING) lead the star-studded cast as English aristocrats Christopher and Sylvia Tietjens. As the decadence of the Edwardian era makes way for the destruction of the First World War, the Tietjens' marriage grows ever more unstable. Christopher is determined to stay loyal to his wife despite her numerous infidelities, but finds his resolve tested when he meets courageous young suffragette Valentine Wannop (Adelaide Clemens). This absorbing love triangle plays out across the events of the tumultuous period, from the stiff-upper-lip of high society London to the harrowing battlefields of France.
