Description
The Lafayette Escadrille was made up of Americans who volunteered to fight for the French against Germany before the U.S. officially entered World War I. Taught to fly by the French military and tasked with combatting better armed and trained German pilots, they had a life expectancy of a few weeks. In this 2006 feature film, James Franco plays lead Escadrille pilot Blaine Rawlings, fresh off the farm. Veteran American Ace Reed Cassidy (Martin Henderson) helps the cocky kid win his wings, while Lucienne (Jennifer Decker) helps him overcome the language barrier.

"Here is the War to End All Wars seen from on high—as it was way back when, in Wing or the Howard Hughes Hell's Angels—a world apart from the grim, futile slaughterhouses of Verdun and the Marne. Among these combatants, you won't find much All Quiet on the Western Front–style despair, and the paths of glory are unsullied by doubt or disillusionment. With Jennifer Decker as a thankful mademoiselle and veteran Jean Reno as the Americans' French commanding officer."—Village Voice
