Cranston, Fishburne and Carell star in this dramedy about three old friends reunited to help one of them. Check out the trailer for Last Flag Flying.
“Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry “Doc” Shepherd reunites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.”
From the trailer this looks like a very promising drama with a terrific trio of lead actors that can easily bring levity to their parts. I guess you could say Richard Linklater, the five-time Oscar nominated filmmaker behind movies such as Dazed and Confused, The School of Rock, The Scanner Darkly, Boyhood or Everybody Wants Some!!, strikes again with Last Flag Flying. Definitely keep it on your radar.
Last Flag Flying was directed by Richard Linklater, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Darryl Ponicsan, the author of the novel of the same name on which this movie is based on. Like I said in the intro, starring in this are Steve Carell, Laurence Fishburne and Bryan Cranston.
Last Flag Flying is set to premiere on September 28th at the New York Film Festival. For those not at the festival Last Flag Flying opens in the US on November 3rd.
