Why Watch? From the lush shots in the opening minutes of David Roddham‘s film, it would be easy to assume Coward was an attempt to look on the bright side of war.  It’s not. Neither is it the Saving Private Ryan kind of bleakness. Instead, it’s a patient film that follows two cousins on the front lines as they deal with the stark reality of shell-shock and a military structure (and storm of bullets) that has little sympathy for it.

Anchored by staunch acting performances, rich cinematography and explosive moments that deeply engage, it’s as difficult to watch as it is rewarding.

What will it cost? Only 28 minutes.
