This may be a little late, but better late than never right? To celebrate Veterans Day, I will highlight a great World War II film we recently added to the collection. Although Saving Private Ryan (1998) isn’t the most recent film on World War II, it is a fantastic film! In case you didn’t know, Saving Private Ryan won six Academy Awards in 1998 for Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing, and Best Film Editing. If that wasn’t enough, it was also nominated for Best Actor (Tom Hanks), Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Best Makeup, Original Dramatic Score, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen, and Best Picture. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg (a man who needs no introduction) and stars Tom Hanks and Matt Damon as Private Ryan.
This is just one war film we have in our collection, but we have quite a variety of war films for you to check out!
