Benediction explores the turbulent life of First World War poet Siegfried Sassoon, played
by Lowden and Capaldi during different stages of his life. Adored by members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s Literary and Stage World, he embarked on affairs with several men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality. At the same
time, broken by the horror of war, he made his life’s journey a quest for salvation, trying to find it within the conformity of marriage and religion.
