About the Film
Director Kip Perry along with filmmaker Elan Bentov examine Gary Sinise’s 40-year commitment to support America’s heroes and their loved ones. The film starts at the beginning of his journey, when Gary learned what it means to serve from the veterans in his family. Soon he was directing a play written by Vietnam veterans and understanding more about the terrible treatment they endured upon their return home from war. Gary's eventual role as Lt. Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump would introduce him to wounded heroes around the world, forming lifelong friendships and alliances with incredibly inspiring individuals. But when the world changed on September 11, 2001, so did the course of Gary’s life—and it’s never been the same since. His mission to serve and honor America’s heroes has become a tireless crusade of service and gratitude, one he hopes will endure as his individual legacy.
The film includes exclusive interviews with Steppenwolf Theatre cofounders Jeff Perry and Terry Kinney, director Robert Zemeckis, actors Gary Cole and Joe Mantegna, comedian Tom Dreesen, celebrity chef Robert Irvine, as well as key members of the Gary Sinise Foundation including Gary himself.
Don’t miss this remarkable story told with the same compassion and enthusiasm that Gary brings to all his philanthropic efforts. Proceeds from the film will support the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission to serve and honor America’s defenders and their loved ones.
