RETURN WITH HONOR
"Very moving . . . Lucid . . . Dignified . . ." - Janet Maslin, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Staggeringly Powerful . . . " - Rod Dreher NEW YORK POST
"Thumbs Up!" - Roger Ebert & The Movies
RETURN WITH HONORS tells the compelling story of American fighter pilots shot down over North Vietnam and their dramatic transformation from self-confident Top Gun type aviators to prisoners-of-war. Weaving powerful interviews with the airmen and their wives with never-before-seen footage from Vietnam's government archives, the film provides a profoundly moving account of how these men survived repeated bout of excruciating torture, long periods of solitary confinementand harrowing loneliness. In chronicling their determination to return home with honor and dignity, the film is a testament to their sacrifice, resilence and courage.
"... the heroism they share is of a classic American sort ...
The stories they tell are inspiring, sometimes astounding,
and most important, true ..."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times
"... inspiring to the extreme ..."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"... the film whose message has a spiritual kinship to 'Saving Private Ryan':
a reassertion of the virtues of bravery, fortitude and self-sacrifice."
- Lance Morrow, Time Magazine
