Directed by Richard Linklater, who co-wrote the film with Darryl Ponicsan, Last Flag Flying is based on the novel by Darryl Ponicsan.

It stars Steve Carrell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, Yul Vazquez, and Cicely Tyson.

In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Steve Carell) re-unites with ex-Marine Sal Nealon (Bryan Cranston) and Reverend Richard Mueller (Laurence Fishburne) on a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.

The film is part of the Opening Night selection of the 55th New York Film Festival on September 28th.

Amazon Studios presents, a Detour film production, a Zenzero Pictures/Cinetic Media production, a Richard Linklater film.

Amazon Studios & Lionsgate will release LAST FLAG FLYING in select cinemas on November 3rd.
