Restrepo (Movie Watch)

In Afghanistan's Korengal Valley, considered to be one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military, American soldiers deployed there have to make heads and tails of the situation on a daily basis. From May 2007 to July 2008, Tim Hetherington & Sebastian Junger dug in with the men of the Second Platoon, Battle Company of the 503rd Infantry Regiment (airborne), stationed at Restrepo, sharing duties & shooting more than 150 hours of combat, frustration, routine, jokes, terror & bravery during daily life at the outpost. We see courage. We experience their frustrations. We share their bonding. We hear the music they listen to, and we see the snapshots of their kids that they pass around. It is something that audiences have never before experienced. As they fight the Taliban, these 15 men win our hearts and minds in a way no fictional film can.
