The Ang Lee directed  film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” is based on a 2012 New York Times bestselling novel written by Ben Fountain. The story is mainly set on one day, the Dallas Cowboys football game during the Thanksgiving holiday. According to the books wiki page, the story follows a US military soldier named Billy Lynn who is part of Bravo Squad, fighting in Iraq. Lynn, a 19-year-old private survives an intense battle, “the Battle of Al-Ansakar Canal“, that happens to be captured by news cameras which catapult him and the other survivors into the limelight. Lynn and the team of soldiers are subsequently brought home by the U.S. government to go on a promotional tour to rally support for the war effort. The tour ends with an appearance at the Thanksgiving Day  halftime show which includes a performance by the Beyoncé led group, Destiny’s Child. However, after the men are paraded around, they face an imminent return to the war. Almost the entire movie takes place during the day of the game, with flashes back to the underlying events and Billy’s heroism.
