Storyline

Frank Stirn (Eric Stoltz) moves with his family to become a barber for the American Army and POW camp at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, in the summer of 1944. Embittered that he cannot fight, Frank must take a stand when a Nazi SS Officer threatens his wife (Kate Connor, playing her real-life grandmother). Her Catholic sister (Lyndsy Fonseca) falls for a Jewish soldier (Andy Hirsch) haunted by the battle of Monte Cassino and the death of his best friend (Matthew Lawrence). Their audacious friend (Camryn Manheim) encourages the couple, while the local priest (Seymour Cassel) cannot. Frank's daughter befriends a German prisoner boy during this magical summer, but war still finds its victims even thousands of miles from the battlefields in rural America.

I liked this film a lot...
2 April 2019 | by tobriandSee all my reviews

I liked this film a lot...especially the budding love between the two innocent children swept up in the harsh realities of war and all it's causalities--super sweet and a wonderful juxtaposition. The production was more intimate than I imagine the real Camp McCoy was, but it only reflects the constraints of what I imagine the indie budget allowed. But it's really well done and the cast is solid across the board, especially the kids mentioned above.
