Happy Tuesday everyone! Here is everyone’s friendly reminder to be nice to everyone and stay safe. 1917 is this week’s pick; this is another one of my favorites from last year.
During World War I, two British soldiers — Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake — receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades — including Blake’s own brother. – Universal Pictures
