Adapted from Anthony Swofford's best-selling memoir by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and ex-Marine pilot William Broyles, Jr. (Apollo 13, Cast Away), Jarhead is a highly relevant, and confronting tale that brings the gut-wrenching and frightening emotional experiences of war to the forefront. The film follows "Swoff" (Jake Gyllenhaal), a naive young recruit and his platoon mates from the intensity and camaraderie of boot camp to being shipped to a lonely outpost in a surreal desert setting.
