On the frontline, there's no time for fear. For 70,000 marines who fought with the bombs blasting and guns blazing, the bloody battle for Iwo Jima was more than the turning point of World War II; it was the defining moment in their lives. Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood taps into the single greatest emotional truth of warfare: soldiers fight for their country, but they die for their friends. Hailed by critics as "a film of awesome power and blistering provocation, an amazing feat" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Flags of Our Fathers is a powerful true story of heroism and bravery that should be shared and remembered.
