“Thank You for Your Service”is a very realistic depiction of war that will undoubtedly cause you to leave the theater upset.
That’s not to say that the movie is bad — it’s very well done.
The movie has very few scenes actually set during wartime, but instead focuses on the after-effects of combat that these soldiers must overcome.
The film is very effective in showing audiences that action needs to be taken in order to ensure proper care for our veterans.
The major conflict is the struggle between accepting or rejecting psychological help, as well as confronting the issue of how scarce that help really is to our veterans.
To put it shortly, this film does an absolutely wonderful job of exposing a problem in how we treat veterans. By the end of the movie you will be wondering whether or not there is anything you can do to help.
