Movie Info

Synopsis: The idea of Civil War re-enactment is a familiar, even comical concept. But the men of Delta 2/5(R) recreate the battles of a far more charged conflict: The Vietnam War. For one weekend a year, the woods of Oregon transform as a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, revive - by choice - a war that a whole generation would much rather forget. Disquieting and provocative, In Country blurs fantasy with trauma, deftly tugging at the imposing question: what compels these men to don vintage uniforms and meticulously bring this controversial war back to life? (C) Bond/360

Critic Reviews for In Country

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

The movie earns its stripes only when Attie and O'Hara interview the weekend warriors and find their motivations to be more varied and legitimate than you might expect.

The world of In Country may sound like a joke to outsiders, and may well be a misguided hobby for some of its subjects. But the film suggests we'd make a big mistake to write it all off as foolish fantasy.

Apr 27, 2015 | Full Review…

Are these re-enactors really as clueless as they seem, or is the portrait just incomplete? It's impossible to tell from this too-sparse film.

This is military reenactment not as entertainment but as a strange form of catharsis.

O'Hara and Attie never judge the players, letting their words and actions speak, though those actions are often intercut with footage from the real war.

Apr 7, 2015 | Full Review…

At least In Country attempts an honest assessment of the various ways people respond to real and recreated combat. For some of them, war isn't always hell, or at least, other hells are worse.
