Flags of Our Fathers (20-Oct-2006)

Director: Clint Eastwood

Writers: William Broyles, Jr.; Paul Haggis

Based on a book by: James Bradley; Ron Powers

Keywords: Drama, WWII

War drama follows events surrounding the Battle of Iwo Jima from the perspective of victorious American soldiers.

ABSTRACT
The Battle of Iwo Jima was a critical moral and strategic turning point for American operations against enemy Japanese forces in World War II's Pacific theater, as a successful offensive encompassing twelve and a half square miles of the island of Iwo Jima galvanized plans to force Japan's hand in surrender and provided Depression-hamstrung America with an image to rally around in the form of a famous photo of the raising of the American flag over Mount Suribachi. Flags of Our Fathers, dramatizing events surrounding the conflict and the psychological effect it had on American soldiers, stands as a companion piece to director and co-producer Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima, forming one half of an ambitious cinematic suite depicting one of World War II's greatest battles from both sides of the conflict.
