OPENS: Friday 11/13

In this heartbreaking drama, Ben Foster (best known as X-Men: The Last Stand's Angel) does a major star turn as a wounded soldier who must inform family members that their loved ones have died overseas. With Woody Harrelson as a jaded officer and Samantha Morton as a complicated widow, the movie creates a compelling portrait of a former warrior faced with an impossible mission off the battlefield.
