Exclusive: New Images From Robert Redford's Lions for Lambs

Five new photos from the Robert Redford/Tom Cruise drama.

After a seven year hiatus from the director's chair, Robert Redford returns in a big way with Lions for Lambs: he'll also be producing and acting in the political drama, co-starring Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise. RT has received exclusive photos for the film, opening everywhere November 2.

 

Redford stars as Dr. Malley, an esteemed professor who inspires two of his students to join the battle in Afghanistan. Cruise co-stars as Senator Jasper Irving, a charming presidential hopeful who's about to drop a bombshell to a inquisitive TV journalist (Streep) that could change the fate of everyone fighting in Afghanistan.



Early photos have emphasized the political drama aspect of Lions for Lambs (angry Tom Cruise sells tickets, after all), so it's easy to forget what the drama's all about: the soldiers fighting for survival in Afghanistan.  The picture below depicts Redford directing Derek Luke and Michael Pena, who play Malley's Afghan-stranded students, out in the field.





The film was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who recently scripted the similarly politically-minded The Kingdom. Click here for more exclusive photos for Lions for Lamb, which opens wide on November 2.
