“Lions for Lambs” quotes(2007)
Plot – Inspired by the words of Dr. Stephen Malley, their idealistic professor of Political Science at West Coast University, Arian and Ernest decide to do something important and meaningful in their lives: they join the army to fight in Afghanistan. While the two boys have to survive on the battlefield, Dr. Malley is struggling with a sense of responsibility for what happened to them and at the same time is worrying about another of his students, Todd, who with his detachment and his apathy seems to be the opposite of his fellow students who have left for war. Meanwhile in Washington, a senator who aspires to the White House is about to make exclusive revelations to a journalist, revelations that could change the fate of Arian and Ernest and of all American soldiers in Afghanistan.
