Storyline

Coward is a moving and insightful drama that takes us from the idyllic pastures of Ireland to the brutal and senseless trenches of the First World War, as Private Patterson tries to keep a family promise to look after his younger cousin. A promise that proves near impossible to fulfill in the relentless and hellish onslaught of the battlefields of 1917 Belgium. Courage and commitment collide in a story, inspired by real events, that underscores the tragic nature of war and illustrates how justice can often be a casualty of warfare. Written by slogger

Truly one of the greats
22 May 2019 | by danblacklock08See all my reviews

Not only is this movie an epic telling of life in the trenches, but it's also one of the most stunningly accurate depictions of war I have EVER seen, and I've seen Saving Private Ryan...TWICE.

The costumes were simply incredible, I have no idea how the designer managed to pull this one off, giving each character such depth through the choice of knitwear.

Nick Moran's hair was also lovely, really enjoyed that.
