Slovenski opis filma:

Po surovi bitki v Iraku postane 19-letni Billy junak in domov pride na zmagoslavno turnejo. V spominskih prebliskih vidimo, kaj se je zares zgodilo njegovi enoti – kot kontrast tistemu, kakor skozi medije vojno dojemajo ameriški državljani.Dvakratni dobitnik oskarja Ang Lee prinaša izjemno filmsko vizijo "Dolga pot do junaštva", osnovano na kritiško priznani knjižni uspešnici. Zgodbo spremljamo skozi oči 19-letnega vojaka Billyja Lynna (Joe Alwyn v svoji prvi vlogi), ki je skupaj s tovariši iz enote Bravo postal junak po surovi bitki v Iraku, zdaj pa se vrača domov na zmagoslavno turnejo. V njegovih spominskih prebliskih, ki dosežejo vrhunec med spektaklom pri polčasu ameriškega nogometa na Zahvalni dan, pa vidimo, kaj se je v resnici zgodilo njegovi enoti na bojišču – kot kontrast tistemu, kakor skozi medije vojno dojemajo ameriški državljani. V filmu igrajo tudi Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel in veteran Steve Martin. S pomočjo nove tehnologije je Lee prvič v zgodovini posnel film pri nenavadno visokem številu sličic na sekundo ter s tem ustvaril hipnotično digitalno doživetje, ki vojno dramatizira tako, kakor je še nismo videli.

Originalni opis filma:

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad - contrasting the realities of the war with America's perceptions. The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before. Lee directed and produced the film, from a screenplay by Jean-Christophe Castelli and based on the novel by Ben Fountain. Marc Platt, Rhodri Thomas, and Stephen Cornwell are also producers.
