Vera Brittain’s beloved WWI memoir Testament of Youth is exquisitely realised in this moving and timely adaptation.

We have our first clip from ‘Jackie & Ryan’ (previously named ‘Your Right Mind’). In the clip, Ryan (Ben Barnes) croons a riveting, toe-tapping bluegrass variation on the folk song “Railroaders’ Lament” (aka as “500 Miles” made popular by Peter, Paul and Mary) inside a recording studio. Check out the clip in BenBarnesFan.com video Archieves (x)
