Based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. by Ben Fountain, the modern wartime drama is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (played by newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions.

BILLY LYNN’S LONG HALFTIME WALK opens in Irish cinemas November 11, 2016.
