Last Flag Flying is a 2017 American comedy-drama film directed by Richard Linklater with a screenplay by Linklater and Darryl Ponicsan, based on the latter’s 2005 novel of the same name.It had its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on September 28, 2017. Principal photography began in November 2016 in Pittsburgh.
Though Last Flag Flying is a movie about the military, part of the intended audience, American soldiers, might find it challenging. The idea that veterans should take pride in their participation in Vietnam or Iraq or Afghanistan is quickly tossed out.
The film tells the story about three veterans of the Vietnam War, one of the most deadly wars in the modern American history. They meet upon the death of one of their son, who also served American army and died in Iraq. The film deals with the atrocities of war through the glasses of three veterans as the audience feels how war changes people.
