About the Movie
In February and March of 1945, U.S. troops fight and win one of the most crucial and costly battles of the war on the island of Iwo Jima. A photo of U.S. servicemen raising the flag on Mount Suribachi becomes an iconic symbol of victory to a war-weary nation. The individuals themselves become heroes, though not all survive the war and realize it.
Flags of Our Fathers was directed, co-produced, and scored by Clint Eastwood and written by William Broyles Jr., and Paul Haggis. The movie is based on the 2000 book of the same name written by James Bradley and Ron Powers. (Rated R)
