Summary, etc.:
Academy Award-winner Vanessa Redgrave (Julia) and Richard Gere (Arbitrage) light up the screen in this captivating drama that follows American GIs in Britain during the second World War. From 1942 until D-Day, millions of U.S. soldiers landed in the United Kingdom on their way to combat on the European front. Though resented by many war-weary locals, these far-from-home "Yanks" found company, friendship and sometimes even love with lonely English women. Based on the screenplay by Colin Welland and Walter Bernstein, Directed by Oscar-winner John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy) and co-starring William Devane (TV's Revenge), this timeless film is beloved by audiences and praised by critics who call it "extraordinary" (The Wall Street Journal).
