Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, ex-Navy corpsman Larry ‘Doc’ Shepherd (Carell) re-unites with his old buddies Sal Nealon (Cranston) and Rev Richard Mueller (Laurence Fishburne), to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
Described as a spiritual sequel to Hal Ashby’s The Last Detail, Richard Linklater’s (Boyhood, Everybody Wants Some!!) film is a moving – and at times hilarious – story of mourning and the value of friendship.
