War Machine

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General&#39s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody - raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader&#39s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story&#39s core is Brad Pitt&#39s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist&#39s no-holds-barred exposé.
