About the Movie

Directed by Academy Award winner Robert Redford, the story begins after two determined students at a West Coast University, Arian (DEREK LUKE) and Ernest (MICHAEL PENA), follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley (REDFORD), and attempt to do something important with their lives. But when the two make the bold decision to join the battle in Afghanistan, Malley is both moved and distraught. Now, as Arian and Ernest fight for survival in the field, they become the string that binds together two disparate stories on opposite sides of America. In California, an anguished Dr. Malley attempts to reach a privileged but disaffected student (ANDREW GARFIELD) who is the very opposite of Arian and Ernest. Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. the charismatic Presidential hopeful, Senator Jasper Irving (CRUISE), is about to give a bombshell story to a probing TV journalist (STREEP) that may affect Arian and Ernests' fates. As arguments, memories and bullets fly, the three stories are woven ever more tightly together, revealing how each of these Americans has a profound impact on each other and the world.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Though these dialogues are worthy, the medium doesn't seem right for the message. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Carnahan's script is thoughtful, but its ideal venue may be a college debate class, not your local multiplex. – Christy Lemire, Newsweek, Nov 12, 2007

Rotten: Unfortunately, a single, compelling plot would have been far more effective than earnest lectures in triplicate. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Nov 17, 2007

Rotten: The film is built not upon characters and plot but upon ideas. That would be fine if the ideas were revolutionary or interesting, but they're fairly commonplace. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 10, 2008
