Jarhead 1: Jamie Foxx and Jake Gyllenhall star in this critically acclaimed portrayal of a group of young “Jarheads” during the explosive days of the Gulf War. From the Academy Award-winning director of American Beauty, Jarhead is a powerful story, told with painful honesty and irreverence, with spectacular cinematography. Jarhead follows ‘Swoff’ (Gyllenhaal) from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle through Middle East deserts with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers. Swoff and his fellow Marines, who have been trained to kill, find themselves in a brutal situation, fighting a war they don't understand for a cause they don't fully grasp
Jarhead2: Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merrimette is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to re-supply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman, famous for her defiance of the Taliban, escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merrimette and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.
