Flags of Our Fathers

Duration :

132

Summary: "Powerful" (Variety). Clint Eastwood's acclaimed World War II saga chronicles the lives of several Marines who fought in the battle for Iwo Jima--and who planted the U.S. flag in a moment that was captured in the famous photograph that inspired the nation. On the rocky Japanese island, one of the bloodiest battles of the war was fought over the course of a month; thousands of lives were ended. But for the three surviving men who planted that famous flag, it was the beginning of a whirlwind of fleeting fame that ended as quickly as it began--and left them alone to pick up the pieces. Ryan Phillippe, Jesse Bradford and Adam Beach star. Directed by Clint Eastwood, screenplay by William Broyles, Jr. and Paul Haggis, based on the book by James Bradley with Ron Powers. (R) (AC,AL,GV)
