Lions for Lambs

Audiences don't seem very interested in dramas that touch on America's current War on Terror. But this one is directed by Robert Redford. In it, two young college students fighting in Afghanistan create a tie that binds an idealistic college professor (Redford), a charismatic neocon senator (Tom Cruise) and a probing TV journalist (Meryl Streep). The whole thing is meant as a criticism of failed government policies; but good writing and solid acting aside, it's a bit hard to connect the dots. 88 minutes R.
