Director: Richard Linklater. Starring: Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, Steve Carell. USA 2017. 125 mins.

In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Carrell) and former Marines Sal Nealon (Cranston) and Reverend Richard Mueller (Fishburne) reunite for a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his hometown in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.
