Three stories told simultaneous in ninety minutes of real time: a Republican Senator who's a presidential hopeful gives an hour-long interview to a skeptical television reporter, detailing a strategy for victory in Afghanistan; two special forces ambushed on an Afghani ridge await rescue as Taliban forces close in; a poli-sci professor at a California college invites a promising student to re-engage.

If you're an American you will either hate it, or reflect on it
The Seventh movie direction of Bob Redford, Lions for Lambs is a movie about conscience and the effects of politics and the government in society, it also touches several aspects of the American society, such as student issues, the manipulation of media for political propaganda ends.
It also invites the viewer to reflect on very important ethical and moral issues of modern society.
Great Cast and good direction but I think the most important part of this movie it's the message but as I said before, you'll either loath it or think about it.
