The Trench


War, Historical drama98 Mins1999

On the eve of a massive battle with the Germans, Sgt. Telford Winter (Daniel Craig) oversees a company of British soldiers too young and naive to be properly terrified of their coming mission. Prominent among the recruits is Billy Macfarlane (Paul Nicholls), a patriotic teenager who struggles to reconcile his homesickness with his sense of duty. Meanwhile, their commanding officer, Lt. Ellis Harte (Julian Rhind-Tutt), squirrels himself away in his tent sipping brandy and reading poetry.
