"Stop-Loss" centers on decorated Iraq war hero Sgt. Brandon King (Ryan Phillippe), a soldier who makes a celebrated return to his small Texas hometown following his tour of duty and is called to duty again in Iraq through the military's "stop-loss" procedure. Brandon tries to resume the life he left behind with the help and support of his loving family, and his best friend, Steve (Channing Tatum), who served with Brandon in Iraq.

 

Alongside their war-time buddies, they try to make peace with civilian life. Then, against Brandon’s will, under a measure called “Stop Loss,” the Army indefinitely extends his enlistment and forces him back to Iraq. This destroys Brandon’s entire world, and sends him to one of the only people he can trust: his childhood friend's fiancée, Michele (Abbie Cornish). Michele becomes Brandon’s confidante and accomplice as he races across the U.S. – a fugitive from justice in the country he fought to protect – in search of a way out of his predicament.

Ca l'air bien sympa. Je suis content de revoir Kimberly Pierce à la charge sur grand écran.

Oui, mais en même temps celui-là a quand même l'air d'être un peu plus sérieux, politique et rentre-dedans. L'Irak semble être plus qu'une toile de fond.

 

Et Kimberly Pierce is a She-God !

 

Ce film et le prochain De Palma, deux projets qui me titillent vraiment.
