The emotional scars inflicted by a soldier's tour of duty in Iraq are almost too much for him to bear as he (Ryan O'Nan) tries to readjust to civilian life.
Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
" O'Nan's shy, precarious performance keeps you with him to the edge of the abyss. "
" Sincere performances elevate an underdeveloped script and awkward filmmaking. "
" Just another cost-of-war movie, you say? Yes, and that's exactly the point. "
" If we'd wanted a sermon, we'd have gone to church, thanks. "
" Debuting writer-director Ryan Piers Williams struggles to find fresh dramatic variations on a familiar (and sadly cyclical) American tragedy. "
" It's impossible to watch the film and not realize that war is folly. "
" Williams draws upon countless earlier dramas without adding anything fresh or memorable to the discussion. "
" Well-intentioned, if unevenly executed. "
