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. His story is one of a troubled man in a fractured world, searching for peace and self-acceptance, something which speaks as meaningfully to the modern world as it did then.
