GREAT MOVIES: TUESDAY 9TH JANUARY AT 9PM

CHANNEL PREMIERE: LIONS FOR LAMBS (2007)

There’s another channel premiere on GREAT! movies this week as Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep star in the political-thriller Lions For Lambs.

In ninety gripping minutes, three parallel narratives unfold in real time in Lion For Lambs.

A Republican Senator and presidential hopeful engages in a tense hour-long interview with a sceptical TV reporter, outlining a strategic vision for victory in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, amidst an ambush on an Afghani ridge, two special forces operatives desperately await rescue while encircled by advancing Taliban forces, directly relative to the strategy in which the Senator is interviewing for.

Simultaneously, a political science professor, who taught the two special force operatives at a Californian college, extends an invitation to a promising student, urging them to rekindle their involvement and do something important with their life – exactly how he convinced his two former students to do the same, leading them to enlist in the forces. The weight of critical decisions bears down on the reporter, the soldiers, and the student, each faced with pivotal choices that could alter their trajectories profoundly.
