Tonight's Movie Is 'The Iron Triangle'

From Wikipedia: The Iron Triangle is a 1989 film about the Vietnam War shot in Sri Lanka[1] and directed by Eric Weston.

The story is based on the diary of an unknown Viet Cong Soldier.

The film stars Beau Bridges, Haing S. Ngor, Liem Whatley, Johnny Hallyday, Jim Ishida, and Ping Wu. Each character helps bring to life the struggle of what it means to fight for one's country.
