Kaplan comes off so convincingly, it's not unfair to wonder if he's truly an actor (he is).

The flaws fall away once you see the look in Justin's eye as the person interviewing him for a job at a dairy bar says the establishment turns into 'kind of a battlefield' during the summer.

FRAY, by Geoff Ryan, is the most powerful and enlightening film I have seen yet on PTSD in war veterans today. Before attending a screening at the 2012 Arizona International Film Festival, I viewed the trailer which made me think the film was going to be like other veterans returning home with PTSD, talky, possibly preachy. But I was very surprised to see a film that gave the audience a voyeuristic view of the everyday life of a veteran and his experience of PTSD. I have never really understood how PTSD manifests until seeing this film. In the very beginning we see Justin (excellently played by Bryan Kaplan), a US Marine who recently returned to Oregon from his most recent tour of duty. As he's driving on a country road deep in the forest, he gets a flashback of combat trauma. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words and I got a deep basic 101 in PTSD just from this first scene.
