Harshly realistic war drama about a decorated Army sergeant (Ryan Phillippe) who returns from Iraq expecting to be discharged, but is ordered to return to combat under the titular policy and instead defies his commander (Timothy Olyphant) by taking off without leave and going to Washington with the help of his best friend's (Channing Tatum) fiancee (Abbie Cornish). Director Kimberly Peirce's moving, measured film is subtly acted but includes language and imagery that restrict its appeal. Graphic battle scenes with gore, pervasive rough and crude language, some crass language and profanity, sexual humor, two obscene gestures and a suicide theme. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
