See The First Trailer For Richard Linklater’s ‘Last Flag Flying’


In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Richard “Doc” Shepherd re-unites with ex-Marines Sal and Mueller on a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared experiences of the war that continue to shape their lives.

Starring Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne, the film is set to debut at the New York Film Festival – followed by a U.S. release November 3 with a UK date to be announced.
