Last Flag Flying (15)

USA/2018/125mins/TBC Dir: Richard Linklater With: Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, Steve Carell

In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Richard "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with Former Marines Sal and Richard Mueller on a different type of mission: to bury Doc's son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo a burial at the official burial ground of Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives and reflect on contemporary conflict. 

"Three fine actors play off one another with gentle deference and affection that seems genuine and unforced… For its studiously modest, unassuming tone, Last Flag Flying is a movie of enormous humanity and heart."
