A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield.
DreamWorks Pictures' Thank You for Your Service follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield. Starring an ensemble cast led by Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Joe Cole, Amy Schumer, Beulah Koale, Scott Haze, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Brad Beyer, Omar J. Dorsey and Jayson Warner Smith, the drama is based on the bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Finkel. Jason Hall, who wrote the screenplay of American Sniper, makes his directorial debut with Thank You for Your Service and also serves as its screenwriter. Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games series, Babel) produces the film, while Ann Ruark (Biutiful) and Jane Evans (Sin City) executive produces.
Steven Spielberg was expected to join the film as director, while American Sniper's Oscar-nominated scribe Jason Dean Hall was hired in June 2013 to adapt the book into a film. See more »
When Sergeant Emery is driving his car with Staff Sergeant Schumann riding in the passenger seat, notice that the outside shots show a silver Dodge Challenger (2-door) but inside shots show what appears to be a Dodge Charger (4-door). In any case, it's clear that there are back doors to the car with their own full windows which is inconsistent with the exterior appearance of the car. See more »
[while having sex, Adam hallucinates Saskia getting hit with gunfire]
[he starts panting]
What happened? What did I do? I don't understand. Tell me what to do. I need you to talk to me, Adam. It's time. I've given you months!
I thought we were broke, and you're buying fucking lingerie!
I thought you were fine. You're lying to me, I found your VA questionnaire, everything's a lie!
I'm not lying.
You're fucked up! You're not looking for a job! You're sick and I can't do anything if you ...

I took my mother to see this film so that she may understand through a movie what I could not share with her verbally but what she has witnessed physically with me. This is not a war movie but a film of what war does to you and how it affects you after you are no longer in physical war but your mind stays in mental war and no one understands ( EMPATHY) except those there with you. After 3 combat tours I identified with things that went over a lot of peoples heads but the movie moved me and Dream Works did a spot on job with what we with PTS go through and why its so hard to deal with and maybe if everyone saw this film they could see the inner turmoil a soldier, a marine, a airman, and a seaman goes through after experiencing physical and mental trauma. Thank You for your service hits on all aspects from the ptsd sufferer to the spouses and all around them. this is a must see to spread compassion to all who served.
