I am utterly excited for this film! The Great Gatsby is my absolute favorite book. There’s something rooted in the symbolism and characters that just entrances me. Nick Carraway is one of the best fictional characters ever to grace the pages of any novel. He’s some on so relatable at least in my opinion, because he’s wildly smart and observant, but quiet. I adore the original version of this film, with Robert Redford, but this version looks very promising. At first I was not thrilled about Tobey Maguire as Nick, but seeing him in footage proves me very wrong! I’m thrilled to see him in the role! Can’t wait! So, sit back and enjoy the trailer. 12.25.2012.

In 2009, U.S. Marines launched a major helicopter assault on a Taliban stronghold in southern Afghanistan. Within hours of being dropped deep behind enemy lines, 25-year-old Sergeant Nathan Harris’s unit (US Marines Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment) is attacked from all sides. Cut off and surrounded, the Marines fight a ghostlike enemy and experience immense hostility from displaced villagers caught in the middle.
Embedded in Echo Company during the assault, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis captures the frontline action with visceral immediacy. When Sergeant Harris returns home to North Carolina after a life-threatening injury in battle, the film evolves from stunning war reportage to the story of one man’s personal apocalypse. With the love and support of his wife, Ashley, Harris struggles to overcome the difficulties of transitioning back to civilian life.
In immense physical pain, Sergeant Harris grows addicted to his medication. His agony deepens as he attempts to reconcile the gulf between his experience of war and the terrifying normalcy of life at home. The two realities seamlessly intertwine to communicate both the extraordinary drama of war and, for a generation of soldiers, the no less difficult experience of returning home.
An unprecedented exploration of the moving image and a film of uncommon intimacy, HELL AND BACK AGAIN comes full circle as it lays bare the true cost of war.
