Platoon

Rated R • 119 minutes

Winner of four OscarsĀ® including Best Picture and Director, this harrowing drama stars Charlie Sheen as a naive college dropout who volunteers in 1968 for military service in Vietnam, then finds his soul trapped between opposing role models: Barnes (Tom Berenger), a battle-scarred pragmatist who will win at any cost, and Elias (Willem Dafoe), a highly moral leader who deplores the war but loves his men. Hailed by critics as a classic of the war genre, writer/director Oliver Stone's masterpiece costars Forest Whitaker and John C. McGinley.
