Award-winning novelist and screenwriter William Boyd brings Evelyn Waugh’s Sword of Honour trilogy to life in this epic two-part drama starring Daniel Craig, Megan Dodds and Leslie Phillips.
At the heart of the story is Guy Crouchback’s (Craig) heroic quest to fight for a deep moral cause and to reclaim his manhood after a shattering divorce from the society beauty Virginia Troy (Dodds). But his encounters with the absurd reality of life in the British Army, strewn with bureaucratic blunders, military debacles and indelibly funny characters, prove to be more of a challenge than facing the enemy itself.

This sprawling and intelligent adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's classic trilogy of novels has the same destabilising shifting of tone (from serious to parodic) to be found in the original books, but it is a more than serviceable literary adaptation. Extra added value is provided by a pre-007 Daniel Craig as Waugh's beleaguered hero Guy Crouchback; Craig is too young for the part, but once again proves that he is a remarkably capable actor. In the same batch of releases, there is a welcome reappearance for the delightful TV adaptation of Mary Wesley's The Camomile Lawn. Hide
