A staggering, masterful achievement, Bécue-Renard’s portrait of a California treatment center for PTSD-afflicted veterans of the Iraq war is patient, understated and emotionally dense. The film uses clear-eyed observation to place us in the room with these battered, proud men as they undergo psychological care. The exchanges are tense and always revelatory, but never clichéd. We also step out of the treatment room to witness the effects of war on the men’s families and broader lives. Never before have the effects of combat been presented in such an authentic, empathetic and impactful way.

Writer and Journalist Jay Jennings will sit down with Director Laurent Bécue-Renard for a Q and A following the screening.
