Directed by
Michael Cimino

Powerful and poignant epic drama chronicling the experiences of three young steelworkers from a close-knit blue-collar community in Pennsylvania at the time of the Vietnam War, counterpointing their initial naive patriotism with the brutal realities they are forced to confront. Arguably one of the best anti-war films ever made, it won five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor.
