King and Country DVD
Starring Dirk Bogarde, Tom Courtenay, Leo McKern, Barry Foster, James Villiers, Peter Copley
Directed by Joseph Losey
Set in WWI, Dirk Bogarde plays an arrogant soldier assigned to defend Arthur Hamp (Tom Courtenay), a slow-witted private who faces the death penalty for desertion.
Initially impatient to have the case over so that he can get back to the war, Bogarde comes to realise that Hamp is innocent, shell-shocked and a little simple.
The court martial is unsympathetic; Hamp is sentenced to death, but his fellow soldiers are unwilling to shoot...
