Poster for Born on the Fourth of July

Tom Cruise is Vietnam vet Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone's Oscar-winning, true story drama. Follows Kovic from a zealous teen who eagerly volunteers for the war, to an embittered veteran paralysed from the mid-chest down. Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returned to an environment vastly different from the one he left and emerged as a brave new voice for the disenchanted - becoming an anti-war and pro-human rights political activist.
