Episode 146: A Few Good Men (1992)

afewgoodmenFor this pairing, the trio are turning to one of the few writers who can be considered an "auteur": Aaron Sorkin. First up, the break-out hit film, based on his Broadway play, 1992's "A Few Good Men." Directed by master filmsmith Rob Reiner and written by Sorkin (with a little help from "The Princess Bride" scribe William Goldman), the film follows the trial of two marines charged with the death of a fellow marine. Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise), with the help of Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) and Lt. Sam Weinberg (Kevin Pollak) must find out what actually happened, and how a squad-based reprimand known as a "code red" plays into the case. Co-starring Jack Nicholson as Col. Nathan R. Jessep (he was nominated for in the Best Supporting Actor category for this role), Kiefer Sutherland as 2nd Lt. Jonathan Kendrick, J.T. Walsh as Lt. Col. Matthew Markinson, and Kevin Bacon as Capt. Jack Ross, the film features cameo appearances from Christopher Guest, Noah Wyle, Cuba Gooding Jr., Josh Malina, and Aaron Sorkin himself! This film established Sorkin as a writer to contend with, and ultimately resulted in several films and four critically-acclaimed television series!
