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.

We spent 12 months on this new Flicks website, and when the rubber met the road, a developer who shall rename nameless didn't finish our member login and sign-ups. Literally everything else got done. But not member login and sign-ups. He had a good crack at it. Came up short. It happens.
Good news is, it'll be finished shortly. Please try again in a day or so. We appreciate your patience.
