A young British officer resigns his commission the day before his regiment heads to battle. They, in turn, send him four white feathers in honor of his cowardice. Starring Wes Bentley, Mohamed Bouich, and Campbell Brown.
This film has a number of plot holes. For instance, Harry Feversham (Heath Ledger) needs to become Arabic, but we don’t know how he learns this in a small span of time. I believe that the four feathers spur Feversham to prove he wasn’t a coward but just doesn’t believe in war. The ending, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. Harry loves Ethne (Kate Hudson) and is hurt when she doesn’t understand his withdrawal from the regiment. While Harry tries to prove his worth, his best friend, Jack, wins the girl. When Harry discovers it, he doesn’t fight for their love and Ethne doesn’t return any affections. It’s a lost storyline. Thus, the film is not worth the watch.
