Saul Dibb's adaptation of R.C. Sherriff’s play is an immaculate production with a top-notch cast.
It’s 1918 and the First World War still rages. In the trenches of Northern France, soldiers can barely hold on to their sanity. None more so than Capt. Stanhope, who knows that sooner or later his men will have to go over the top and into battle again.
