In the Valley of Elah – 2007 – Paul Haggis

vm_sy140_sx100_.jpgA sober, probing look at the costs and consequences of war for American families by Crash director, Paul Haggis. It’s not the first, but certainly one of the best in the category of “post-war” movies. Tommy Lee Jones is fantastic as a Vietnam veteran and a father. Omid Nikfarjam
