Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 12/01/1996
"...Surprisingly moving, beautifully acted..."
Variety - 09/16/1996
"...Technically, the film is pro at all levels, with Grania Preston's early-'70s costuming quietly on the button..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/22/1996
"...A portrait of the Middle American family at once as critical and compassionate as that of a Sinclair Lewis novel....A confident, straight-ahead no-nonsense movie that delivers its message relentlessly with maximum impact..."

Product Description:

A year after his return from Vietnam, a young veteran living at home with his domineering father and misguidedly cheerful mother still can't put the effects of the war behind him. When the family gathers for Thanksgiving, his pent-up anger and frustration boil over, leading to a wrenching confrontation that will forever change the very fabric of the family.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

The War At Home
This highly acclaimed motion picture stars Emilio Estevez (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, ANOTHER STAKEOUT), Kathy Bates (Academy Award(R)-winning Best Actress, MISERY), and Martin Sheen (THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT). Estevez (who also directed) plays a returning Vietnam War hero whose haunting experiences leave him unable to adjust to the quiet realities of small town life. At odds with his domineering father (Sheen), his desperately cheerful mother (Bates), and free-spirited younger sister (Kimberly Williams -- FATHER OF THE BRIDE 1&2) -- tensions at home soon escalate, finally reaching the breaking point one fateful Thanksgiving Day. A timeles story of one family's struggle to overcome the past ... THE WAR AT HOME is unforgettable movie entertainment!

Plot Synopsis:

When Vietnam vet Jeremy Collier returns home to Texas, after serving in Vietnam, his presence immediately causes conflicts within his dysfunctional family. Then, during a climactic Thanksgiving weekend, the deeply traumatized Jeremy and his stony father have it out... and Jeremy reveals exactly what he endured in Vietnam.
But only time will tell whether the family will pull together -- or become even more fractured -- after the holiday is over.
