Nicely made independent movie touching on a subject seldom discussed in U.S. history books: POW camps on U.S. soil. This based-on-a-true-story tale nicely portrays semi-rural and military life in the Midwest during World War II.
Great performance by Clint Eastwood. Really nice to see him play a regular person, a departure from his earlier strong character portrayals. Nice message about the dangers of sacrificing family for work.
