Saving Private Ryan (24-Jul-1998)

Director: Steven Spielberg

Writer: Robert Rodat

Music by: John Williams

Producers: Steven Spielberg; Ian Bryce; Mark Gordon; Gary Levinsohn

Keywords: Action/Adventure, WWII, D-Day, Infantry, Sniper, Explosions

A squad of soldiers venture behind German lines on D-Day to find and recover Private James F. Ryan, whose three others brothers were killed in combat. The film opens with a visceral portrayal of the violence of war unparalleled in cinema, though it does not at all present an accurate portrayal of the landing on Omaha Beach. Winner of five Academy awards including Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing.
