OPENING NIGHT

RICHARD LINKLATER’S 

LAST FLAG FLYING


Director: Richard Linklater
Screenplay:  Richard Linklater, Darryl Ponicsan
Cast:  Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, Laurence Fishburne 


Three aging Vietnam-era Navy vets—soft-spoken Doc (Steve Carell), unhinged and unfiltered Sal (Bryan Cranston), and quietly measured Mueller (Laurence Fishburne)—reunite to perform a sacred task: the proper burial of Doc’s only child, who has been killed in the early days of the Iraqi Invasion.

Richard Linklater is a 57 year old (by Opening Night) director of such films as Boyhood, Before Sunset, Before Midnight, Before Sunrise, School Of Rock, and Dazed And Confused.
