    I've heard it is a very stirring movie. I plan to watch it.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I wonder if there is any chance of it coming out on DVD.

    I watched it and thought it was well done. There were however (IMO) a few political interjections that could have done without, but those were minor and in all a very good story that was very well told.
    For those of you who don't know the story, It is about a Marine Lt.Col. who volunteers to escort a fallen Marine soldier across the county back home. It did a wonderful job showing the care, respect, and honor given to a soldier who has given his/her life in the line of duty.

    Must see if you can.

    What's the show about? I've heard a lot of good hype about it, but haven't gotten a chance to look more into it.

    I finally watched the movie, and I agree with your comment about the political interjections although I don't think they took away from the story itself.

    I also agree that it's a must-see.

    I have a hard time seeing someone like Bacon, a proudly anti-war, anti-Bush leftist, play the role. Struck me as hollow, despite his performance.
