Born on the Fourth of July

Young Ron Kovic (Tom Cruise) eagerly volunteers for the Vietnam War as a teen, but he becomes an embittered veteran when he is paralyzed from the mid-chest down. Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returns to an environment vastly different from the one he left, and struggles before emerging as a brave new voice for the disenchanted.
