GARDENS OF STONE - LE
Release date: 21 January 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)
Francis Ford Coppola’s impressive return to the subject of the Vietnam War is a poignant and contemplative companion piece to his epic masterwork Apocalypse Now.
Set in 1968, the film reunites Coppola with Godfather star James Caan, who plays a disillusioned army sergeant stationed at Fort Meyers’ Arlington Cemetery and views the war in Vietnam as unwinnable, despairing at the dead arriving daily for burial from the front lines.
This powerful drama from one of American cinema’s most audacious filmmakers boasts a towering performance by Caan, and a superb supporting cast, including Anjelica Huston, James Earl Jones, Mary Stuart Masterson and DB Sweeney.
