Lions for Lambs
The star power behind Lions for Lambs is impressive. Redford, Streep, Cruise, the ultimate Hollywood heavy hitters. Interesting to me that I was more affected by the words and actions of the lesser known actors' characters. Young people, either trying to make a difference, or cynical about trying. For me, this is a consciousness raising film that doesn't say anything new, but raises important issues. I think it's good to talk about and question government, war, authority, history. Get involved, try, look back, look forward, ask questions. Lots of questions, and there are no easy answers. I liked this film, it made me think.
