Nicola Shindler’s Choice: The Mark of Cain
This BAFTA-winning, hard-hitting and controversial film is based on the testimony of real soldiers.
Channel 4 2007
Dir Marc Munden
With Gerard Kearns, Matthew McNulty, Naomi Bentley
Winning the BAFTA for best single drama in 2008, this is a fine choice to represent Shindler’s work. Tony Marchant’s hard-hitting and controversial film is based on the testimony of real soldiers, and so sensitive was the subject matter that Channel 4 delayed its transmission twice. Both Kearns and McNulty received great critical acclaim for their portrayal of young soldiers forced to choose between loyalty to their regiment and their own morals.
