Stationed in Iraq, 19-year-old soldier, Billy Lynn (Joe Alwyn), and his squad return to the United States for a hero’s welcome and victory tour after a harrowing Iraq battle contrasting the realities of war with America’s perceptions in “Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk”. From Sony Pictures Entertainment:
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour.
Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions. The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before.
Directed by Ang Lee. Written by Jean-Christophe Castelli (screenplay) and Ben Fountain (novel). Starring Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Chris Tucker, Deirdre Lovejoy, Ben Platt, Tim Blake Nelson, Makenzie Leigh and Beau Knapp. Release date November 11th, 2016 (USA).
