Lions For Lambs(2007)
Two determined students (including the awesome Michael Pe?a from Crash) follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley (Redford), and attempt to do something important with their lives. But when they make the decision to join the battle in Afghanistan, Malley is both moved and distraught. Now, as the two students fight for survival in the field, they become the string that binds together two disparate stories on opposite sides of America.
In California, an anguished Dr. Malley attempts to reach a privileged but disaffected student (Andrew Garfield). Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. the charismatic Presidential hopeful, Senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise), is about to give a bombshell story to a probing TV journalist (Meryl Streep) that may affect Arian and Ernest's fates.
