Hiep Thi Le in Heaven & Earth

Hiep Thi Le in Heaven & Earth

Oliver Stone concludes his Vietnam Trilogy (also including Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July) with the 1993 war drama Heaven & Earth (1993), based on the memoirs of Le Ly Hayslip.

Born in a small, peaceful village in French Colonial Vietnam, Le Ly (Hiep Thi Le), like her country, is thrown into chaos inflicted equally by the Viet Cong, the South Vietnamese government, and invading American forces. Brutalized in every imaginable way, this young woman looks for rescue to an American soldier (Tommy Lee Jones, Men in Black 3), only to find more trouble in store when she comes to America as his bride.

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray debut of Heaven & Earth contains the following features:

-Audio commentary with director Oliver Stone
-Deleted scenes with optional director commentary
-Alternate opening with score from Kitaro
-Original theatrical trailer
