We are so happy that Sam has been recognised for his role in this beautiful film, which tells the story of a group of soldiers during the First World War all awaiting their fate from a dugout in Northern France as the Germans prepare an attack. As Captain Stanhope, Sam portrays a young officer in charge of these men as his own mental state disintegrates. We were lucky enough to see the film at last year’s London Film Festival premiere and couldn’t be more proud that Sam has been recognised for such a heartfelt and beautiful portrayal. We will keep our fingers crossed for him!

The Evening Standard British Film Awards ceremony will take place at Claridges in London on the 8th February. Good luck Sam!

I look forward to bringing this thrilling story to the screen with such a brilliant cast.”
