Good movie that deals with an forgotten theme during the Vietnam War.
18 December 2003 | by (Meise, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie when I was 13 or so and I was heavily into war movies. I got home and watched it immediatly and I saw that this movie wasn't about the terrors of war during the war itself (for example platoon, all quiet on the western front,...) but about the physical consequences rather than the mental ones (in country, the deerhunter,...). Its not like I'm placing this movie on the same level as these ones because this is simply a TV-production where the others are considered milestones in war cinematography. But it's good movie nonetheless. Good not great. Solid performances by Patti LaBelle and the late John Ritter...
