()

Coming Out at 4 November 2005 in theaters

Action, Biography, Drama

Jarhead is biographical war drama film based on U.S. Marine Anthony Swofford’s 2003 memoir of the same name, directed by Sam Mendes, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Swofford with Jamie Foxx, Peter Sarsgaard, Lucas Black, and Chris Cooper. Jarhead chronicles Swofford’s life story, as he is serving in the Gulf War period. Jarhead is the slang term used to refer to United States Marines.

The film was released on November 4, 2005, by Universal Pictures. Upon release, the film received mixed reviews and was a box office disappointment, grossing $96 million against a budget of $72 million.

In 1989, Anthony “Swoff” Swofford, whose father served in the earlier Vietnam War (1961-1975), attends United States Marine Corps recruit training before being stationed at Camp Pendleton, California. Claiming that he joined the military because he “got lost on the way to college”, Swofford finds his time at Camp Pendleton difficult, and struggles to make friends. While Swofford feigns illness to avoid his responsibilities, a “lifer”, Staff Sergeant Sykes, takes note of his potential and orders Swofford to attend his Scout Sniper course.
