In March 1918, an army company take their posting on a front-line trench, knowing that a German attack is imminent. With supplies as low as the men’s morale, this is no place for new recruit Raleigh (Butterfield), who has requested a placement with Stanhope (Claflin), his sister’s fiancé, now much changed through war stresses and alcohol. Director Dibb (The Duchess) captures the dread-inducing claustrophobia of the trenches in this outstanding adaptation of RC Sherriff’s 1928 play.
