Jonathan Demme directs this updated remake of John Frankenheimer's classic 1962 political thriller, based on the novel by Richard Condon. Major Bennett Marco (Denzel Washington) and Sergeant Raymond Shaw (Liev Schreiber) fought together in the Gulf War. A few years on, helped along by his reputation as a war hero and his powerful stateswoman mother (Meryl Streep), Shaw is on his way to becoming vice-president. Marco's post-war experience has been very different: plagued with mental health problems, he cannot shift a deepening sense of unease about what exactly happened to him during Operation Desert Storm, particularly with regards to Shaw and his supposed heroic deeds. As he begins to investigate, he meets with powerful resistance from the highest quarters, and begins to wonder if his suspicions might be based on events worse than he could ever have imagined...
