This is the best film of the year hands down. The script is clever, the acting is marvelous, the topic is poignant, the editing is perfect, and the photography and music are well done.
Pay no attention to the advertisements for the film. They are accurate to a point, like saying "Rocky" is about a fighter or "The Wild Bunch" is a western. In truth, the film is about family and what it takes to create, support, and nurture a family.
Special mention must be made of Shia LeBeouf's performance. Personally I'm not a fan, but his acting in this film is top quality, and he gets excellent support from Jai Courtney and Kate Mara. Gary Oldman is in the film briefly, but his scenes are vital. Tony Kittles does a great job as the training Sergeant.
Do yourself a favor and see this film.
