Based on a novel by Ben Fountain, this drama follows Iraq war hero Billy Lynn as he is honored back home during a football game on Thanksgiving day. The film explores the difference between the American public perception of the war and its on-the-ground reality, and it addresses the turmoil that the disconnect causes in Billy and his fellow soldiers. The film stars Joe Alwyn, Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Garrett Hedlund (Friday Night Lights), Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious), Steve Martin and Chris Tucker (Friday). It was directed by Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Eat Drink Man Woman, The Ice Storm).
