Writer and director Terence Davies’ latest film “Benediction” premiered at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival, where it received strong critical praise for its screenplay depicting the life of WWI poet Siegfried Sassoon and for the leading performance by Jack Lowden, with many citing it as the best of his career. Both Terence and Jack were kind enough to spend a few minutes discussing with us what drew them toward this biopic, what they learned about Siegfried in the making of this movie, their favorite poems by him, and more. Be sure to please check out the film, which is playing in limited release now from Roadside Attractions. Thank you, and enjoy!
