Tom Cruise delivers a riveting and unforgettable portrayal of Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning masterpiece Born on the Fourth of July. Based on a true story, the acclaimed film follows Kovic from a zealous teen who eagerly volunteered for the Vietnam War, to an embittered veteran paralyzed from the mid-chest down. Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returned to an environment vastly different from the one he left, and struggled before emerging as a brave new voice for the disenchanted.
Tom Cruise is a favorite so when this was recommended to me by a friend who says this is definitely relative to life's story, I ordered it. However, have not watched it yet.Published 1 day ago by Pat

One of my favorite Tom Cruise movies. He should have received an academy award for this performance. A hard film to watch, but worth it.Published 15 days ago by mham61
