Tom Cruise's "Lion for Lambs" Q&A

Tom Cruise's

Tom Cruise attends an advance screening of his upcoming wartime suspense tale Lions For Lambs on Thursday held at the Pelham Picture House in the Westchester County of New York. He also stayed for a Q&A session with movie critics and regular movie theater-goers.

The Robert Redford-directed film is based on a platoon of soldiers stationed in Afghanistan, a senator, a reporter, and a college professor. This is the first United Artists film produced by Tom and producing partner Paula Wagner, since Tom, 45, fell out with Paramount Pictures. Release date: November 9, 2007.

Plot ganked from Wiki because it’s interesting: “Two determined students at a West Coast University, Arian (Derek Luke) and Ernest (Michael Pena), follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Stephen Malley (Robert Redford), and attempt to do something important with their lives. But when the two make the bold decision to join the battle in Afghanistan, Malley is both moved and distraught. Now, as Arian and Ernest fight for survival in the field, they become the string that binds together two disparate stories on opposite sides of America. In California, an anguished Dr. Malley attempts to reach Todd (Andrew Garfield), a privileged but disaffected student who is the very opposite of Arian and Ernest. Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. the charismatic Presidential hopeful, Senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise), is about to give a bombshell story to TV journalist Janine Roth (Meryl Streep) that may affect Arian and Ernest’s fates. As arguments, memories and bullets fly, the three stories are woven ever more tightly together, revealing how each of these Americans has a profound impact.
