Download Movie Flags of Our FathersIn February, 1945, one of the fiercest battles of the Pacific theater of World War II occurs on the tiny island of Iwo Jima. Thousands of Marines attack the stronghold maintained by thousands of Japanese, and the slaughter on both sides is horrific. Early in the battle, an American flag is raised atop the high point, Mount Suribachi, and a photograph of the raising becomes an American cause celebre. As a powerful inspiration to war-sick Americans, the photo becomes a symbol of the Allied cause. The three surviving flag raisers, Rene Gagnon, John Bradley, and Ira Hayes, are whisked back to civilization to help raise funds for the war effort. But the accolades for heroism heaped upon the three men are at odds with their own personal realizations that thousands of real heroes lie dead on Iwo Jima, and that their own contributions to the fight are only symbolic and not deserving of the singling out they are experiencing. Each of the three must come to terms with the honors, exploitation, and grief that they face simply for being in a photograph.

Clint Eastwood

I can not remember the last time that a film moved me the way this film did. Clint Eastwood presents an honest portrayal of the war (the beauty of brotherhood, the horror of literally walk through death, the pain of coping with survival). The images made me feel as if you were getting a glimpse into the lives of men who served during World War II. The players carried their own weight. We understand that he was not acting out characters, which represents real men. Often, the war films of today are used to actively promote the war or to demonize it. I am grateful for this film to make my own mind. "Flags of Our Fathers" is a film that will stay with you. It is not that what great movies are supposed to do? This movie reminds you why movies are important.
