Newman’s pulse-pounding score often serves as a unique form of editing, as it punctuates dramatic cues, ramps up in battle scenes and, in one breath-taking moment, ascends to the operatic as MacKay runs through war ruins to escape being seen from enemy flares.

The music to the movie is composed by Thomas Newman (The Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty, Road to Perdition). Newman has received a whopping 14 Oscar bids throughout his career, and this new epic score is already nominated for an Oscar and Hollywood Critics Association Award. 1917 is directed by Sam Mendes, who wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Showtime’s Penny Dreadful). Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus reads: “Hard-hitting, immersive, and an impressive technical achievement, ‘1917’ captures the trench warfare of World War I with raw, startling immediacy.”
