This is not what I expected. The based on true events plotline takes you to unimaginable places. Tim Robbins and others shine in this. A must see!

Very intense, deeply moving story about the Vietnam War but also a different take on the `return home'!

"I'm not quite sure what movie Rochelle O'Gorman watched for her editorial review. "A spirited performance by Elizabeth Peña outshines Robbins, who is surprisingly lethargic." What? Robbins' character was *supposed* to be lethargic. He was dissociated from reality. He was walking in a dream, unable to associate between fantasy and what was real. It was a stellar performance."
