Lions for Lambs
2007
 
While a Washington bigwig (Tom Cruise) goes toe-to-toe with a reporter (Meryl Streep) on the issue of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, an idealistic professor (Robert Redford) tries to keep his students engaged as two of his former pupils struggle to survive behind enemy lines in the Middle East. Redford also directs this complex look at America's war on terror, a three-pronged narrative of lives connected by politics and bloodshed.
Synopsis compliments of Netflix
Drama, War
 
The role of an angry, haughty, reckless politician was perfect for Tom Cruise. All of the actors are fine, but the script is disjointed and trivial at best. Odd that the second soldier jumped out of the helicopter, and that both survived.
