A first official look at Sand Castle, the upcoming war drama movie directed by Fernando Coimbra based on a script by Chris Roessner and starring Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill, Glen Powell, Beau Knapp, and Neil Brown Jr:
“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.”
Do you think Iraq would be more stable if Saddam Hussein was still running things over there? Or do you think it would still have become a mess anyway?
The film has yet to get an official release date, sometimes in Spring 2017 on Netflix.
