With an all-star cast le0d by Ethan Hawke, Gary Sinise, Kevin Dillon and Peter Berg, A Midnight Clear is a classic war movie that has won critical acclaim and a cult following.
As the end of World War II approaches a group of American soldiers are assigned to watch activity amidst the stark snow covered landscape of the French-German border and soon discover a battle weary enemy as reluctant to fight as they are. With common ground established the German platoon offer to be 'captured' and a phony battle is staged to save honour. However, a tragic misunderstanding has devastating consequences in this powerful depiction of war's insanity.
