MORE BELOW: #TheLastFullMeasure, which will be screened Monday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m., has a superstar cast of Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris, Jeremy Irvine, William Hurt, Christopher Plummer and Diane Ladd.
Based on the true story of Airman William H. Pitsenbarger, Jr., who was killed in the Vietnam War, the film features efforts 34 years after Pitsenbarger's death to award him the nation's highest military honour. “It's going to be a big film,” said Frick. “It's probably going to be one of the largest war films coming out over the next few years.” She added that there's not a lot of epic war films about the Vietnam War — most are about the First World War or Second World War.
What's also interesting about “The Last Full Measure” is that while it features some battle scenes, it's really about the politics behind the war.
