Politicians, the media, educators, military commanders and a docile public all come under fire in a well-made movie that offers no answers but raises many important questions. show more
as an 85 year old person it iis hard to see politicians making decisions like they do..perhaps a draft for their own sons would affect their decisions.
I just finished watching this so very real movie. It is not fluff. This is a movie for all of us. The message is there for all of us. I love the last part when professor is telling the complaciant student , the decsions we make now can't be altered later and define who we become. I cried, I got angry and I felt gratitude that someone is willing to say it like it is. Thank you Mr Redford.
I just saw the movie today and I thought it was really good. Also it would be a good movie that you can learn from.
