Last Flag Flying Directed
Richard Linklater USA / 2017 / 119 minutes
Times and Venues:
In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Richard Doc Shepherd (Steve Carell) re-unites with ex-Marines Sal (Bryan Cranston) and Mueller (Laurence Fishburne) on a different type of mission: to bury Doc's son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.
BIO: Richard Linklater was born in Houston, Texas, in July 1960. After moving to Austin and founding a film society after he dropped out of college, Linklater began making small-budget movies, with early notable films such as Slacker and Dazed and Confused generating a lot of buzz. Linklater has branched out at times into mainstream Hollywood fare such as Bad News Bears and School of Rock, but he quickly retreated into quieter, more personal films like Before Sunset and Before Midnight, having been nominated for two Oscars as well. In 2009, Linklater was honored with Woodstock Film Festival's Honorary Maverick Award. 2014's Boyhood received overwhelming critical praise for its storytelling and unique process. In addition to receiving Oscar nominations, both the film and Linklater himself won Golden Globes in 2015.
