BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK

Dir. Ang Lee

2016 | UK/USA | Drama/War | 110 mins | In English | M18 (Sexual Scene & Coarse Language)

Two-time Academy Award winner Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk', based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel.  

The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour.  Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad - contrasting the realities of the war with America's perceptions.  

Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before.
