'In the Valley of Elah' Coming September 21

Wanted to share the trailer for the long-anticipated Paul Haggis ("Crash") film, In the Valley of Elah, released by Warner Independent Pictures and arriving in theaters on September 21. [UPDATE Aug 30 2007]: Correcting premiere date from September 14; the film will now debut the following week, on September 21. --ed.

The movie's genesis:

Readers of Playboy magazine were shocked by “Death and Dishonor,” Mark Boal’s investigative article published in the summer of 2004. Boal interviewed Lanny Davis, a former U.S. Army M.P., about the death of his son, who had been reported AWOL following a tour of duty in Baghdad. Davis, refus[ed] to accept the army’s version of his son’s disappearance...[and I don't want to give away any more of the plot line].

Starring Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron, Susan Sarandon and Jason Patric, the film (which I've been given the opportunity to see in advance) drives us into the darkest side of war's personal fallout and doesn't let up on the pedal until its shattering conclusion.

A terribly important film. Hurry, September.
