This was a personal project of Emilio Estevez's which he had been trying to get before the cameras for about four years during this time taking on projects such as the Mighty Duck films, Judgment Night and others to get studios interested in the project. Disney finally did in 1995 after Estevez agreed to appear in D3: The Mighty Ducks despite the fact that he was almost reluctant to return to the series along with co-star Joshua Jackson. Estevez's role in that film was basically a cameo as he was heavily involved with the making of this film. Both films would come out a month apart from one another, October-November 1996. See more »
The history of my family, like the history of civilization, is the history of war. The getting into it, and outta it, and over it... and Vietnam should have been no different. But it was. It's final battle was fought on an unrecognized front, far from the shellings and the napalm and the guns and the shooting... it was a battle my brother Jeremy fought when he came back.

Not being a movie aficionado, I am not familiar with the names of leading Directors, Scriptwriters, Producers and the like, but I can tell an outstanding movie when I see one.
The makers of this fine movie could well be now at the top of their fields, or may well get there pretty soon. I know that the actors are already there.
It takes talent closer to genius to show with such realism how a national tragedy like Vietnam has impacted the everyday life of a typically average American family, and make us see at close range why there are so many homeless Vietnam veterans.
Without getting into gratuitous scenes of gore and bloodshed, it makes us understand why so many youg men had flashbacks of what they had been thru.
The dialog is particularly gripping, and gives us an idea of what went on in so many families in the aftermath of Vietnam.
I wish there were more good movies like this one, not just about Vietnam, but about other social conditions as well.
