September 19, 1997
Two young men returning from the Korean war question the meaning of life and establish an unlikely friendship based on common ideals-and they will go to any extreme to find it, in Mark Pellington’s compelling coming-of-age drama. Shy, unpopular Sonny is on a train home to Indianapolis when he meets a fellow vet, and hometown football hero, Gunner. They couldn’t be more opposite. Together, the two form a bond cemented by a mutual distaste for the conventional and set out on a soul-searching adventure that pushes the limits of sex, friendship, and social conventions.
