Sir! No Sir!

Movie Summary

Director:
David Zeiger
Released:
2005
Rating:
Not Available
Easily the most timely and resonant film about the soldiers on the front lines of antiwar resistance, the award-winning breakout theatrical hit SIR! NO! SIR! tells an almost entirely forgotten story of the military men and women who forced the U.S. government to end the Vietnam War. Contrary to the popular image of long-haired hippies spitting on returning soldiers, SIR! NO! SIR! powerfully demonstrates that GIs were the heart and soul of the anti-war movement.Poignantly narrated by a diverse cast of veteran GI resisters who recall the ferocious days of peace marches and stiff jail sentences, SIR! NO! SIR! pulls no punches in its raw depiction of the power of people, especially those in uniform. Directed by David Zeiger, SIR! NO! SIR! is ?powerful stuff, offering us not only a new look at the past, but to the unavoidably relevant insights into the present? (New York Daily News).
