Produced by a collective of notable documentary filmmakers including Barbara Kopple and David Grubin, Winter Soldier was lauded at the Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals and throughout Europe. But it had almost no theatrical life in the U.S.--until now, when it is proving itself still thought-provoking and remarkably timely.
The name for the meeting, and the film, comes from a line in Thomas Paine's first Crisis Paper: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country. But he who stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." (95 mins.)
