It’s been three years since the completion of Todd Robinson’s new military war drama, The Last Full Measure. Casting switcheroos and production length aside, the film finally screened for veterans last October in Westhampton and Roadside Attractions has since taken the mantle to host its release this weekend.
The true story of Vietnam War hero William H. Pitsenbarger, a USAF Pararescue medic who saved over sixty men in the U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division before making the ultimate sacrifice in one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Thirty-two years later, Pentagon staffer Scott Huffman investigates a decades-long Congressional Medal of Honor request for Pitsenbarger and uncovers a high-level conspiracy prompting him to put his career on the line to seek justice for the fallen airman.
Sebastian Stan leads the cast along with Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Ed Harris and Jeremy Irvine.
