The Deer Hunter (1978) won five Oscars, including best picture. It tells the story of three young Americans from a small steel-mill town before, during and after their service in the Vietnam war. The movie gives a harrowing depiction of the psychological effects of war, and what we today call post-traumatic stress disorder.
The film will be introduced by Ben Fortier, a veteran of the Iraq war who now works in broadcast television.
