Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Over a period of two years, Mark Cowen and his crew travelled to 30 U.S. and ten European cities, to interview the veterans of Easy Co. The stories, told by the veterans themselves, create a history of the Second World War from the point of view of this heroic company of men, made famous in the mini-series Band of Brothers.

This is a full-length DVD extra included with the giant "Band of Brothers" DVD set. It is about the men you see telling their stories at the beginning of each episode of "Band of Brothers". Here, instead of the usual brief snippets, the men all get to tell their stories about being a part of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. In addition, there are a lot of photos as well as video footage of the men having their reunion at the end. All in all, a very inspiring piece that simply allows the men to reminisce and discuss their experiences during the war. In many ways, it's like a condensed version of what you see in the film and because of that it's really best to first see all of the "Band of Brothers" mini-series and then this film of the real participants. Well worth seeing and exceptionally well made.
