“Oliver Stone’s unrelenting epic about a Vietnamese woman’s experience of war…moments of power and empathy…the women’s movie to end all women’s movies.”
—David Denby, New York Magazine
“In a time when few American directors are drawn toward political controversy, Stone seeks it out. He loves big subjects and approaches them fearlessly…viewing the war through the eyes of a Vietnamese woman…who represents all of the ordinary people who wanted only to get on with their ordinary lives.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Heaven and Earth touches the heart not only as a cross-cultural treasure but as Oliver Stone’s most soulful movie.”
—Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Sprituality & Practice
Oliver Stone concludes his Vietnam Trilogy (also including Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July) with Heaven and Earth (1993), based on the memoirs of Le Ly Hayslip. Born in a small, peaceful village in French Colonial Vietnam, Le Ly (Hiep Thi Le), like her country, is thrown into chaos inflicted equally by the Viet Cong, the South Vietnamese government, and invading American forces. Brutalized in every imaginable way, this young woman looks for rescue to an American soldier (Tommy Lee Jones), only to find more trouble in store when she comes to America as his bride.
