Release Date: TBA 2014
Thoughts: With so many movies being made about the war experience from the male perspective, it’s refreshing to see a different angle being positioned for Fort Bliss. Single mother Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) returns from her tour in Afghanistan to find that reconnecting with her son and adjusting back into society is just as tough as she imagined it to be. I’ve always been on the fence about Monaghan, that is until I saw her stellar work in HBO’s True Detective this past year where she went toe-to-toe with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey and held her own quite well. She seems like a good fit for this role and she’s backed by a nice array of familiar character actors. Who knows if this will go anywhere but seems to me like it’s a film that may hold some interest.
