Film Description

During World War Two, new recruit Private Doll (Keir Dullea) finds himself stationed in Guadalcanal under the leadership of a hardened sergeant (Jack Warden). As he does battle with the Japanese forces, Doll finds himself in continual conflict with his no-nonsense superior, and the ensuing struggle for supremacy places the mission in jeopardy. The first adaptation of James Jones' novel, followed by Terrence Malick's Oscar nominated version in 1998, this focuses not on glamorous heroics of war as much as the dreadful realities of a situation where young men, in a foreign land, realise they all may die. The waiting becomes as powerful as the combat sequences in this realistic, honest drama.
