Fort McCoy

Product Description


Eric Stoltz gives one of his most powerful performances as Frank Stirn, who moves with his family to become a barber for the American Army and POW camp at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin in the summer of 1944.  Embittered that he cannot fight, Frank must take a stand when a Nazi SS Officer threatens his wife (Kate Connor, playing her real-life grandmother).  Her Catholic sister falls for a Jewish soldier haunted by the battle of Monte Cassino and the death of his best friend.  The war still finds its victims even thousands of miles from the battlefields.

"Elegant. Wonderful. Shows that love and goodness still remain the saving graces of humanity. The performances are excellent. The Characters are so rich. Stoltz underplays beautifully. The lovely Connor is the solid center of the film." --We Are Movie Geeks
