The idea of Civil War re-enactment is a familiar, even comical concept. But the men of Delta 2/5(R) recreate the battles of a far more charged conflict: The Vietnam War. For one weekend a year, the woods of Oregon transform as a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, revive - by choice - a war that a whole generation would much rather forget. Disquieting and provocative, In Country blurs fantasy with trauma, deftly tugging at the imposing question: what compels these men to don vintage uniforms and meticulously bring this controversial war back to life?

Avi Offer - NYC MOVIE GURU
"The movie earns its stripes only when Attie and O'Hara interview the weekend warriors and find their motivations to be more varied and legitimate than you might expect."
J. R. Jones - CHICAGO READER
"In Country is as much an unabashedly humanist document as it is a fascinating and touching piece of nonfiction filmmaking."
