Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie, Minh (the young boy) walks the length of the darkened Quonset hut. He goes to the end and looks through the set of double doors. The very next scene switches to the exterior. He is now exiting a single door, because he has come out on the side of the building. See more »

Quotes

Addie: [explaining his drawing of a whipped slave] What's wrong, kid? Don't worry, that's not me. That's not me. See, that's an America you don't understand yet. It's bigger than those Sears and Roebuck's catalogs they been giving you, or those movies they're showing you, and your Mighty Mouse comics.

This movie is a must see
15 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly do not understand why this movie is getting the kind of reviews it is getting.

The acting was brilliant in all fields, I found the little boy who play Minh's character amazing, especially for that age.

Very touched by the stories of every individual just because they where in a camp away from all the war doesn't mean the war is not there(including Swayze's and Whitaker's charterers of course). I found that the story to bring out a different part of the Vietnam war that is constantly looked over, well every war for that matter.

Strictly a movie that is about people life story. I keep seeing reviews how they felt it was an "Anti-American" film because of a few scenes... Honestly the movie about the emotions of the people who is not in their home country that is being torn up from their own people, and their only way out is to live in a camp that is completely foreign. Try to comprehend that.

This is a very good movie and it is worth a watch.
