Mark-Wahlberg-Lone-Survivor8. Lone Survivor dir. Peter Berg

Writer/Director Peter Berg crafts a striking portrait of the human spirit and unbreakable bonds in his new film LONE SURVIVOR. Four NAVY SEALS are sent on a covert mission to counteract a high-level al-Qaeda operative and capture a notorious Taliban leader. Once in the mountains of Afghanistan, the squad is ambushed and totally surrounded by a much larger force ready for combat. Isolated from help, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they confront unthinkable odds together and stay in the fight to the finish. Featuring powerful performances from Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster, the four men are pushed beyond metal and physical limits and brilliant portray the undertakings faced daily by our armed forces. Based on The New York Times bestselling memoir of Marcus Luttrell, LONE SURVIVOR honors and recounts a true story of heroism, courage and survival.
