Storyline

For a wounded American soldier returning home from Iraq, the conflict has just begun. "Home Front" captures the human story of what happens when Sergeant Jeremy Feldbusch returns to civilian life in his small hometown, as he readjusts to family, community --and most importantly, his new, altered self. On another level, the film is also about Jeremy's family, and how they cope with events that have forever changed them. By turns heartbreaking and inspiring, "Home Front" gets behind the often-sanitized myth of war to reveal its true complications and costs. Written by Anonymous

Moving doc that Shows How Soldiers will Protect their Psyche
29 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A moving documentary that takes the viewer inside a typical rural, American home and allows us to see the problems that must be dealt with when a wounded soldier returns home. However, even though this film may have been shot before the release of the Downing St Memo, the revelation of no WMDs, and the numerous CIA officials who have since testified that they were pressured to manipulate intelligence for Cheney and Rumsfeld, what this film truly illuminates is the battle that a soldier and his/her family must wage to convince themselves of what they suspect may not be true, in order to keep their sanity. This is very common and sad. You will often see a family member teetering on severe depression at the thought that their loved one's life was destroyed for no good reason, only to quickly revert to a viewpoint that will give them some sense of relief ("this was for the greater good. We were taking down a tyrant") And who can really blame them. You'd almost rather see them take comfort from a false notion than to see them rage a the pointlessness of this, and most, wars.
