A Plethora of run-of-the-mill films on the Iraq war failed to hit the mark — until now.
Paul Haggis’s 'In the Valley of Elah' (Optimum, €24.99) turns the spotlight on the conflict in an unexpected way when soldier Mike Deerfield (Jonathan Tucker) goes missing following a tour of duty in Iraq.
Tommy Lee Jones plays his father Hank, a former military policeman determined to discover the truth behind his disappearance.
What he discovers, with the initially reluctant help of police detective Emily Sanders (Charlize Theron), turns his world upside down. Extras include featurettes, an interview with Haggis and additional scenes.
