BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY
1989, Universal, 145 min, USA, Dir: Oliver Stone

Based on the autobiography of Vietnam War veteran Ron Kovic, this powerful film earned fellow Vietnam vet Oliver Stone a Best Director Oscar. In one of his best performances, Tom Cruise stars as Kovic, a Marine wounded in a firefight and paralyzed from the chest down. Returning to a society that is indifferent if not hostile, he struggles to reconcile the rhetoric about the war with its reality, eventually taking a place at the front lines of the protest movement. Costarring Kyra Sedgwick and Willem Dafoe. Based in Los Angeles? This is a once in a lifetime screening that you won’t want to miss!
