An emotional powerhouse drama. Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster are stunning.

A different type of war film that focuses on the grief and aftermath of combat. Harrelson and Ben Foster (who I think is one of the greatest young actors working today) put in powerhouse performances that find a subtle balance between sadness and anger. The film touches on difficult themes that the average war film doesn't often explore.

A strongly acted film, with good performances from Foster and Harrelson as soldiers who inform families of their loved ones deaths in war. Both are battling their own demons as they are trying to readjust to their new lives. Gets a little dark at times which makes for a heavy viewing but these are probably the strongest performances I've seen from these actors. I wouldn't be surprised to see some Oscar nominations for this small film.
