Lions for Lambs

I saw this movie today. It was well acted and it was a good story. Robert Redford, Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise star in this movie with three intersecting stories about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Redford and Streep were marvelous. Tom Cruise was his usual narcissistic and manic self. It was hardly a stretch for him. Redford also directed this film. There was political undercurrent to this movie, and it was a tad manipulative. I will say, that no matter what your political leanings are, there is one point in the movie that rings true. Instead of complaining about something and doing nothing about it, a body could try to change the situation. Even if nothing comes of it, at least doing something is better than doing nothing.

Merry Karma out.
