Movie Info

It's 1916 and British Captain Fred Roberts (Ben Chaplin,The Thin Red Line) and his detachment discover an abandoned printing press in the ruins of Ypres, Belgium. Roberts has an idea - he will produce a newspaper to raise the spirits of his soldiers. They call it The Wipers Times - after the army slang for Ypres - and fill it with spoofs, jokes, and subversive comedy.
