Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Storyline
The movie was adapted from Ben Fountain’s novel “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk”, which is considered to be the Catch-22 version of the Iraq war. The protagonist is a 19 year old boy (Billy Lynn), he joined the U.S. Army Infantry and was sent to the battlefield in Iraq. In 2005, he and his colleagues escaped from death in a shootout catastrophe. In order to show the results of the war in Iraq, the Bush administration recalled them, let them stand with Beyonce and other entertainment stars on the Dallas Cowboys Football at halftime in the Thanksgiving Day, and awarded the Medal of Honor to them.
But after that, Billy Lynn and other veterans were sent back to Iraq by the Bush administration.

2016 Official Movie Trailer (HD)
The effect of 120 frames shocked me, feeling the frame occurring in front of eye.
A general plot, the story is about the PTSD, very American. A little disappointed, the story is shocking, but compared to Ang Lee’s work before, miss a little taste.
Ang Lee is a director who never repeats himself, the film will be very original, after the trailer exposure, the film was deemed to be the next year’s Oscar seed
