Flags of Our Fathers

James Bradley's book about the Battle of Iwo Jima (and that famous flag photo) gets adapted by screenwriters Bill Broyles (Apollo 13, Jarhead) and Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby, Crash) and directed by Clint Eastwood. The film follows the life stories of the six men who raised that famous flag. The film both celebrates the heroism of the battle and also deconstructs the government's cynical PR manipulation of the event. 132 minutes R.
