Born on the Fourth of July

When Ron Kovic went to fight in Vietnam, his fellow Americans were waving flags. When he returned, paralyzed from the mid-chest down, they were burning them. Director Oliver Stone draws on Kovic's real life experiences in a drama starring Tom Cruise as a man who must find the courage to create a new life when the world of his youth has been shattered beyond repair.
