War Drama Plays at Sunrise Theater
The Sunflix movie series presents "The Hurt Locker," a drama/action/war movie, starring Jeremy Renner, Ralph Fiennes, Anthony Mackie, David Morse and Guy Pearce, will play at the Sunrise Thursday, Sept. 3, and Saturday, Sept. 5, through Monday, Sept. 7.
The film is produced and directed by Kathryn Bigelow and has been honored with multiple awards, including Best Picture at the Venice Film Festival.
The film's official Web site provides the following summary:
"In the summer of 2004, Sergeant J.T. Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge of Bravo Company are at the volatile center of the war, part of a small counterforce specifically trained to handle the homemade bombs, or Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), that account for more than half of American hostile deaths and have killed thousands of Iraqis. A high-pressure, high-stakes assignment, the job leaves no room for mistakes, as they learn when they lose their team leader on a mission.
"When Staff Sergeant William James takes over the team, Sanborn and Eldridge are shocked by what seems like his reckless disregard for military protocol and basic safety measures. And yet, in the fog of war, appearances are never reliable for long. As the fiery chaos of Baghdad swirls around them, the men struggle to understand and contain their new leader long enough for them to make it home. They have only 38 days left in their tour of Iraq, but with each new mission comes another deadly encounter, and as James blurs the line between bravery and bravado, it seems only a matter of time before disaster will strike."
