Red Dawn (1984)


109 MIN


Russian and Cuban forces have invaded the U.S. and are viciously eliminating the inhabitants of a small town when a group of teens escapes and plans a counterattack. Jed and Robert and six of their friends watch in amazement as the soldiers parachute into their town and start shooting. The teens grab a pick-up truck, stock up on supplies at the local store, and head for the hills. Meanwhile, the men in the town – after a minimal resistance – are rounded up and held at a drive-in theatre converted into a concentration camp. The sadistic Soviet military then make them watch acclaimed Russian director Sergei Eisenstein’s 1938 classic Alexander Nevsky, as their punishing rehabilitation begins.
