Description: Flags of Our Fathers is a reconstruction of the events in the lives of six men, an account of what led up to and followed one of World War IIís most enduring images: the flag raising on top of Mount Suribachi on the island of Iwo Jima. The snapshot forever immortalized six soldiers, who instantly became a part of American history that day. Three of the men, Franklin Sousley (Joseph Cross), Michael Strank (Barry Pepper), and Harlon Block (Ben Walker) did not survive the war. John Bradley (Ryan Phillippe), Rene Gagnon (Jesse Bradford), and Ira Hayes (Adam Beach) did, but became unwilling symbols of victory for the public to celebrate. Only Bradley managed to live his life largely unaffected by the attention. Having never kept a copy of the infamous photograph and having never spoken of the events to his close friends and family, he passed away relatively quietly. His sonís discovery of his involvement in the battle takes the young man on a quest to learn more about the father, his friends, and their lives.
