Men Go to Battle
Bracing for another winter on their Kentucky farm, brothers Henry and Francis have become suffocatingly close. Francis’ practical jokes have become increasingly aggressive until he accidentally injures Henry in a drunken fight. Then, after humiliating himself further, Henry disappears in the night. Only months later does Francis learn that Henry has joined the Union army, leaving each brother to find out separately what the approaching war will bring. Winner of Best New Narrative Director at the Tribeca Film Festival, Men Go to Battle has been called an “instant-classic” by The New Yorker.
