In the Valley of Elah


This was a very interesting movie that starred Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron. This is about a soldier named Mike Deerfield, whose father Henry (played by Jones) is trying to find him after he comes back from Iraq and goes AWOL.
Henry finds out that his son has gone AWOL when the base calls the home to look for him. Henry takes his case to the police, but is told that he has to go to the military police, but wants the state police to take care of it. The reason for it is because he is a former army man and knows how they will work.
Henry forces his way into helping the police find his son and find out what happened; and also find out who did it. This happens the entire movie which was interesting, because it had twists and turns the entire time, and makes you think what happened, who did it, and what certain things could mean when the characters see them and are trying to go after the attackers. This movie will make you think. I want you to go see this movie.
