Clint Eastwood's acclaimed World War II saga chronicles the lives of several Marines who fought in the battle for Iwo Jima--and who planted the U.S. flag in a moment that was captured in the famous photograph that inspired the nation. For the three surviving men who planted that famous flag, it was the beginning of a whirlwind of fleeting fame...and tragic remembrance.
From Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood (?Million Dollar Baby,? ?Unforgiven?) comes the World War II epic "Flags of Our Fathers,? produced by Eastwood, Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg (?Saving Private Ryan,? ?Schindler?s List?), and Rob Lorenz (?Mystic River?). February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi. The inspiring photo capturing that moment became a symbol of victory to a nation that had grown weary of war and made instant heroes of the six American soldiers at the base of the flag, some of whom would die soon after, never knowing that they had been immortalized. But the surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes; they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were fighting and dying without fanfare or glory. ?Flags of Our Fathers? is based on the bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers, which chronicled the battle of Iwo Jima and the fates of the flag raisers and some of their brothers in Easy Company. Bradley?s father, John ?Doc? Bradley, was one of the soldiers pictured raising the flag, although James never knew the full extent of his father?s experiences until after the elder Bradley?s death in 1994. The ensemble cast of ?Flags of Our Fathers? includes Ryan Phillippe (?Crash?), Jesse Bradford (?Happy Endings?), Adam Beach (?Windtalkers?), Paul Walker (?Into the Blue?), Jamie Bell (?Billy Elliot?), Barry Pepper (?Saving Private Ryan?) and John Benjamin Hickey (?Flightplan?). Clint Eastwood directed ?Flags of Our Fathers? from a screenplay adapted by William Broyles, Jr. (?Cast Away?) and Oscar winner Paul Haggis (?Million Dollar Baby,? ?Crash?).
