Last Flag Flying

One of my favorite kinds of movie are the ones that present an issue from several different angles so that the viewer can soak it all in and come to their own conclusions.  This film excelled at this as at different times were presented with different views on morality, religion, war, the government and more.  They key to doing this is to not be heavy-handed.

Anyway, I absolutely loved every minute of the film.  The three leads were amazing (if you haven’t seen Steve Carell in dramas then you are really missing out) and the characters had real depth.  Finally, the ending was perfect.
