Watch The Trench
- 1 hr 38 min
This suspenseful war movie directed by William Boyd is loosely based on an historic event, the effort by the British forces and their Australian allies during the First World War to engage in extensive trench warfare along the front lines. Their commanding officers hoped to use the underground excavations to gain an advantage in the conflict, which was causing enormously high casualties. This drama revolves around characters assigned to participate in the trench warfare campaign; under constant fear of attack, they endure physically uncomfortable, stressful conditions and sometimes harbor strong personal differences. The cast includes Paul Nicholls and Julian Rhind-Tutt.
