In the Valley of Elah

by Paul Haggis Retro

Young Mike Deerfield, who returned to his home base following an 18-month deployment in Iraq, suddenly disappears. His father, a retired army officer and Vietnam veteran, stumbles upon an atrocious crime when he goes on the trail of his missing son. Instead of focussing on the portrayal of war, this film centres on its after and side effects within the soldiers’ families. One of the most important anti-war films of recent years.
