Description
By now, the idea of Civil War re-enactment is familiar, but the subjects of this intriguing documentary relive the battles of a far more surprising conflict: Vietnam. Drawing a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq War soldiers, actual Vietnam veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, this band of brothers regularly recreates an unpopular war that a whole generation would rather forget. IN COUNTRY blurs fantasy with trauma while questioning what compels these men to don the vintage uniforms and bring the controversial war back to life. -CM
