Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam

1987 Rated PG-13 1hr 24m

Filmmaker Bill Couturie's poignant HBO documentary strikingly captures the gamut of emotion experienced by Vietnam veterans, as a host of celebrated actors -- including Robert De Niro and Sean Penn -- recite correspondence from American soldiers. Set to a 1960s soundtrack and accompanied by authentic news footage, still photos and home movies, these readings create an honest snapshot of a tumultuous time.
