Synopsis

Billy Lynn is a 19 year-old American soldier returning from a tour of duty in Iraq. Along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, Lynn has become a national hero following a particularly gruelling battle, and is now being taken on a victory tour designed to spur up patriotic pride in a weary nation. Culminating in a spectacular halftime display at a Thanksgiving football game, the film gradually reveals what really took place, contrasting with the vision fed to the American public by media and politicians. Directed by one of the most acclaimed and eclectic film directors of our time, and based on a popular novel, this is a technically audacious project, but one that promises to focus on revealing powerful human and emotional truths.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
