Robert Redford
returns in a big way with
Lions for Lambs
he’ll also be producing and acting in the political drama, co-starring
Meryl Streep
and Tom Cruise.
RT has received
for the film, opening everywhere November 2.

inspires two of his students to join the battle in Afghanistan. Cruise co-stars
as Senator Jasper Irving, a charming presidential hopeful who’s about to drop a

Afghanistan.  The picture below depicts Redford directing
Derek Luke and
Michael Pena,
who play Malley’s Afghan-stranded students, out in the field.

The film was written by

Matthew Michael Carnahan
