THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD0130_old1-1000x541

“Aesthetic and technical feats aside, THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD will leave you feeling short of breath. Not because it’s intentionally trying to mimic how a soldier would feel on the battlefield, but because it creates an immediacy to a time most of us did not live through with remarkable detail.” – Sam Cohen, Edge Boston

“The men who gave their lives during World War I forsook the privilege of growing older. In Jackson’s film, they’ll keep their youth, vigor, and bravery forever.” – Andy Crump, Polygon

“Nothing less than a miracle of bleeding-edge digital filmmaking techniques…” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“…a movie that makes these figures in old footage more than historical curiosities, but real people which, of course, they were. ” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
