Thanks to Netflix here’s the first official trailer of Sand Castle, the upcoming war drama movie directed by Fernando Coimbra and starring Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill, Glen Powell, Beau Knapp, and Neil Brown Jr:
Inspired by true events.
War unites us. War change us.
“Set in Iraq in 2003, Sand Castle follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who together with several fellow soldiers is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger. It’s here, in the streets, squares and schools that he discovers the true cost of war.”
War is horrible but sometimes it’s the only way to protect democracy and freedom in the long term…
The film will be released on Netflix on April 21, 2017.
