Bravery in the Field
Film  (28:35) 1979, director: Giles Walker
Description
Tommy is a veteran of World War II. He rooms alone, waiting for his pension cheque to arrive, passing the time in the evenings with his cronies in the Legion Hall. Lennie can claim only a third of Tommy's years, but he prowls the same area of town, and, surprisingly enough, they have more in common than either of them realizes. Bravery in the Field portrays the frustrations and hostilities of these two men whose lives lack a sense of place and purpose. The story occurs early in November and leads up to an event that provides one of Tommy's few remaining moments of glory: the annual veterans' Remembrance Day parade.
