Based on a 2005 novel by Darryl Ponicsan, “Last Flag Flying” tells the story of former Navy Corpsman Larry “Doc” Shepherd, played by Steve Carell. Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, Shepherd reunites with his old Marine buddies, Sal Nealon (Bryan Cranston) and Rev. Richard Mueller (Laurence Fishburne) to bury his son, a Marine killed in the Iraq War. The film is directed by Richard Linklater.
