Every victory comes with sacrifice and hard-won lessons -- on and off the battlefield. Academy Award winner Robert Duvall stars as a maverick military officer whose tyranny threatens to tear his family apart in the gripping drama The Great Santini. A warrior without a war, Lieutenant Colonel Bull Meechum (Duvall--The Apostle, Tender Mercies) governs his troubled family using the same iron will and cold-as-steel toughness with which he commands his squadron. Nicknamed "The Great Santini,"Meechum almost destroys his devoted wife (Blythe Danner--The Prince of Tides, Mad City) and rebellious son (Michael O'Keefe--Ghosts ofMississippi) with his harsh, authoritarian love.
