Moving, heartbreaking vet's tale

This is an important movie for mature teens to see. Our veterans frequently return from traumatic tours of duty with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and consequently turn to drugs and alcohol. Many are not will to undergo counseling, and all suffer. This movie depicts this suffering without holding anything back, very disturbing and beautifully crafted.

'Moving and often disturbing portrayal of an era in American History

This is a powerful, truthful re-enactment of what it was like to be an American growing up in the 60's, with ambivalent feelings of patriotism and the downward-spiraling sense that something just wasn't right with our country and it's leaders--and with this un-ending War hanging over the heads of every graduating senior in high school. The movie passionately displays one man's shift in ideologies, from a "love-it-or-leave it" patriot to antiwar activist. Having lived through that era, this cinematic portrayal is accurate and thought-provoking. I highly recommend it for telling the truth about a difficult time in our Nation's history.
