Have popcorn, will travel: Belcourt screens ‘Body of War,’ nostalgic ‘Wrath of Khan’

 

In the absence of an “art” theater or a movie house willing to show anything other than mainstream movies, Clarksville Online takes a look at screenings slated for Nashville’s Belcourt Theater.

Body of War, an award-winning film which opened May 9, is the story of Tomas Young, 25 years old, paralyzed from a bullet to his spine, wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week. This coming home war story is about the evolution of one man who life was changed with a single bullet to the spine; he must re-invent himself in light of a permanent disability and as a powerful voice against the War [in Iraq].
