Trivia

The story was inspired by the Lee Teter print "Reflections". The film's screenwriter, retired U.S. Army Major Ken Miller, who served in Vietnam, saw Teter's famous illustration in an art gallery and immediately was filled with war-related emotions. See more »

A disenfranchised Viet Nam vet is forced to confront his own demons while trying to care for his buddy's daughter.
4 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I hope everyone across America has the opportunity to see it. It had such depth- we're still talking about the thought-provoking issues raised. The topic is very timely. Anyone who has been in the military, or knows a veteran should relate to it. Especially post 9/11 and into Iraq, there has been more attention given to the Viet Nam war. The acting was terrific. I had only seen Danny Glover in action roles. He captured the character of a tormented loner amazingly well. The little girl is a treasure. Linda Hamilton is very believable as a tough Alaskan widow. The scenery is spectacular. I'd love to see it again, and have told dozens of friends and coworkers they need to see it when it comes out.
