IT’S NOT WHAT STANDS IN FRONT OF YOU, IT’S WHO STANDS BESIDE YOU.
After two sci-fi films, the director took on a drama based on factual events, a portrait of the Granite Mountain Hotshots who in 2013 bravely fought the devastating Yarnell Hill Fire. Inspired by a GQ article, the film focuses primarily on two men – the veteran leader (Josh Brolin) of the team whose wife wants him to settle down and start a family, and a young newcomer (Miles Teller) who’s kicked a drug habit and become a father. A conventional but well-made drama about real-life heroes, with a fine cast and hypnotic fire effects, combining danger and beauty.
