Charlotte's Film Club: Jarhead

Charlotte's next film this week is 2005 biography with Jake Gyllenhaal 'Jarhead'.

Set in the late 1980s, Anthony Swofford enlists as a Marine, training in boot camp under a sadistic drill instructor. During this time Swofford undertakes a sniper course, shortly before the advent of the Gulf war. When the United States becomes involved, Swofford is shipped out, facing uncertainty each day -- about the war and home -- the soldier tries to maintain composure.
