After mobile phone footage of a harrowing battle in Iraq is shared, Billy Lynn (Joe Alwyn) becomes a national hero and Bravo squad is temporarily brought home to the USA for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, it is revealed what really happened on the frontline.

Directed by Ang Lee and based on the award-winning novel by Ben Fountain, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk explores the struggles of post-combat America and the contrasting realities of the war with America’s perceptions.
