Storyline

Angela, a graduate student of American history and peace studies at UCLA, is introduced to a new way of thinking by three young friends. Searching for a new apartment for herself and her boyfriend, Kai, Angela stumbles upon a renovated house beside a mysterious field. She meets Chris, the building manager, and his buddies, Riley and Joey, who invite her to partake in "war games." Chris explains that the field site has remained uninhabited since a troubled Vietnam veteran occupied it years ago. The group sets out and soon learns about the nature of survival and conquest while confronted by the question, "What is the true cost of war?" Only their experience in "Field Day" can answer. Written by Jeanne Marie Spicuzza

Great movie, excellent message!
9 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The visuals in this film are spectacular! The lighting is artfully executed. The story, very well-written by Ms. Spicuzza, follows a graduate student who has studied American history, the first step in education, but has never truly experienced the inhumanity and corruption of the business of war. As we witness some of the dreadful similarities between Vietnam and Iraq, its attacks on the poor, "Field Day" offers us a personal approach to these themes, I hail the filmmakers for their daring. I'm not surprised that I haven't seen this picture in a multitude of festivals. The material is simply too controversial, which is what makes the work truly shine.
