This dramatisation of the 48 hours leading up to the Battle of the Somme in 1916 underscores the bitter loss of innocence of a group of idealistic young men, including 17-year-old Billy Macfarlane who's enlisted in order to be with his older brother, Eddie. But Eddie's sent home after being wounded, leaving his innocent brother behind to face the slow, inevitable countdown to the bloodiest massacre in British military history.




  • Cheap b production

    Old movie. Super low budget. No big battles.

    Not sure why iTunes is saying this was released in 2020. This 1999 indy movie is 20 years old, and at the time most of the now-big name actors in it were young and inexperienced. It's not great, but not terrible. But if you're wondering what Craig and Murphy are doing in a low-budget WWI flick, there ya go.
