Drama: In 2007, three traumatized war buddies return from Iraq and must adjust to civilian life.
In 2007, three soldiers are returning from Iraqi and are looking forward to reconnect with the women who love them and get back into civilian life. Adam (MILES TELLER) is a sergeant who's reunited with his wife, Saskia (HALEY BENNETT), young daughter, and a baby son he's never met. Solo (BEULAH KOALE) is an Army specialist who is eager to start a family with his wife, Alea (KEISHA CASTLE-HUGHES). And Will (JOE COLE) just misses the hot intimacy he shared with his fiancée, Tracey (ERIN DARKE), and hopes to resume that immediately.

Upon returning, though, the three find assimilating back into society difficult. Adam's kids don't know him, his benefits won't kick in for several months, and he's been having suicidal thoughts ever since a mission went wrong under his command. Solo is clearly suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), has problems with his short-term memory, craves drugs to cope, and wants only to reenlist. Will, meanwhile, has returned to an empty house with his fiancée having left him.

From there, things get worse before they can get better. The men have to deal with a Department of Veteran Affairs that is overburdened and ill-prepared to handle the influx of Afghan and Iraqi war veterans in need of help. Solo gets roped into a local crime ring led by former vet-turned-gangster named Dante (OMAR J. DORSEY). And Adam weighs leaving his family to check himself into a treatment facility in California when a spot opens up.

Older teens may have some interest due to the young cast. Those in military families, especially anyone with a parent stationed overseas, may have additional reasons for seeing the film.
For strong violent content, language throughout, some sexuality, drug material, and brief nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
