  • movie Description
  • Flags of Our Fathers is the acclaimed 2006 war drama from movie icon actor turned director Clint Eastwood and prolific screenwriter-director Paul Haggis. The film centers around three young soldiers - John 'Doc' Bradley (Ryan Phillippe), who recalls the incident as an old, guilt-laden man, still thinking about the men who perished on that fateful day when they raised the famous flag on Iwo Jima, Rene Gagnon (Jesse Bradford), who saw a lot less action than his fellow peers, but was still honored as a flag raising hero, and Ira Hayes (Adam Beach), a native American who battled severe alcoholism, racism and depression after all three are thrust into fame and fortune, when a famous photo of six soldiers raising the American flag becomes an iconic symbol of hope and patriotism during the second world war. What the story then depicts is how this affected the three remaining combatants themselves. How they struggled to cope with fame, and why they found it so hard to come to terms with being hailed a hero, when the horrors of their wartime experiences haunted them rigorously.moreless
