Why watch this film?
Tom Holland had already shown he was an excellent actor even as a child when he stole the scene in 'The Impossible' and, since then, he has only evolved. In this movie, Holland delivers a worthy performance - making it clear that he is not just Spider-Man from the Marvel Universe. 'Cherry' deals with the post-traumatic disorder that a young doctor suffers after returning from Iraq. The film is an interesting portrait of how the army messes with the minds of soldiers (and all those involved in this environment) and how damaging this can be in the future. As seen in Stanley Kubrick's 'Full Metal Jacket', if the training is psychologically disturbing, just imagine going to war.
An Army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt.
