Ethan Hawke is a platoon sergeant heading a group of intellectual servicemen in this World War II drama. Assigned to monitor the enemy from a remote, snowy region, the group encounters German soldiers intent on surrender.

The young cast — which includes Peter Berg, Arye Gross and Kevin Dillon ― are vibrant, but the film’s ant-war theme has already been expressed with greater eloquence. Directed by former actor Keith Gordon (“Christine“). Rated R.
