The Trench by William Boyd

The Trench

William Boyd on The Trench

This is a low budget World War I film set during the 48 hours before the Battle of the Somme in 1916. I also directed it. I was left with a totally free hand and so the film turned out exactly as I expected: it can sit on the shelf alongside my novels.  As time goes by its then cast of unknown actors grows ever more celebrated: Daniel Craig, Cillian Murphy, Danny Dyer, Julian Rhind Tutt, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Paul Nicholls.
