Born on the Fourth of July

USA, 1989, 35mm, 144 min.
Directed by Oliver Stone
Cast: Tom Cruise, Kyra Sedgwick, Willem Dafoe

Vietnam veteran Stone’s second movie to deal directly with the war is an adaptation of the autobiography of Ron Kovic. A gung-ho marine who was wounded and paralyzed during his second tour of duty, Kovic returned to the U.S. and became a leading anti-war activist. Born on the Fourth of July is solidly anchored by a powerhouse Cruise performance as Kovic and John Williams’ mournful Americana score, featuring trumpet soloist Tim Morrison.
