While Scott’s brother Alden enlists in the country’s armed forces, he and Ralph are outspoken in their opposition to the war. Scott’s attitude alienates him from his father and he and Ralph leave town to enjoy their freedom. But when Ralph is expelled from college, he suddenly becomes a prime candidate for serving the country’s armed forces. When they learn Scott’s brother is declared missing in action, the lifelong friends take drastic – and illegal – measures to ensure Ralph’s freedom. This event proves to be the catalyst needed to bridge the gap between father and son and enlightens them both to the true cost of war.
Plot: Two rebellious youths, Ralph and Scott, find themselves struggling with adulthood as the Vietnam War rages. Feeling trapped in their small town, Scott battles with his conservative veteran father, Cliff, and Ralph deals with his desperately sexual mother, Ev. When tragic news arrives from overseas, the entire town, inspired by Ralph and Scott’s antiwar efforts, reevaluates its attitude toward the war.

Shallow perhaps but meaningful
Granted there wasn’t much of a plot to 1969 and the acting was fair, but nevertheless I thought the film did accomplish something important. It made you realize that this kind of “drama” – coping with the aftermath of a Vietnam KIA – played out in tens-of-thousands of homes throughout the country during the ’60s and ’70s. The sum of all that pain and anguish makes me cringe. I served in South Vietnam from the summer of ’68 to the summer of ’69 in the USMC and I am glad to see this kind of message portrayed in a movie. It keeps alive the suffering endured by family and friends from that time. Maybe that sounds morbid but I think it’s important for the here and now to acknowledge and remember that suffering. We can use it to give us perspective on how fortunate we are to be able to flourish and live to a ripe old age. For me of course it has special meaning. I could have ended my life at 19 and would have missed so much.

But that’s what happened to so many. A horrible shame.

Maybe Not the Deepest of Films But It Has Heart, Honesty and Acting to Match
The overall point of the film may be a little obvious but it appears the story may be semi-autobiographical. What saves this movie are the acting and the characters which never lapse into stereotypes. Kiefer Sutherland plays Scott, a very different character than many of his previous roles. Rather than playing the adolescent leader-rebel (as in “Stand by Me”), Sutherland takes the role of a somewhat soft-spoken intellectual hippie-type who is into literature and leaves but not into drugs. His best friend, Ralph, played by Robert Downey Jr., is exactly the opposite. Ralph likes women and psychedelic drugs but doesn’t understand any of the other aspects of the hippie culture, which included reverence for certain high literature. He isn’t sure who Camus is. For him, the drugs and staying out of Vietnam are all that matters. Downey’s sister, Beth (Winnona Ryder), eventually becomes a significant part of the story as the film progresses.

The film doesn’t have much of a coherent plot and may be described as a character study of its leads. The setting is a small town in Maryland where Scott’s brother, Alden, is about to leave for Vietnam. He is one of the first from this nameless town to be drafted into the war and the locals, including his family, seem perplexed by the whole affair. In an uncomfortable scene, Alden tries to make amends with his younger brother Scott who says the war is “b.s.” Their father (Bruce Dern) who feels strongly that his sons should fight as he did in World War II reprimands Scott for his disrespect. Luckily, Dern’s performance is not over-the-top and it works. After a rather strange farewell, Ralph decides that neither himself nor his friend Scott should allow themselves to get drafted. Scott begins to explore the young peoples’ counter-culture movement of the late 1960’s while Ralph seems only interested in exploring the drugs. They attend college, mostly to avoid the draft, but Ralph lapses in his studies. During their first summer, they decide to go on a road trip.

A good movie, by no means a great one, but high marks for all the leads and supporting characters, particularly Bruce Dern as Scott’s father and Mariette Hartley as the mother. It seems this movie was missing something that was present in the writer’s brilliant play “On Golden Pond”. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the film made its point all too soon. I think I wanted an additional profound revelation besides the idea that Vietnam was a bad war.
