Steven Spielberg directs this WWII drama set against the backdrop of the Normandy landings. A squad of American soldiers, led by Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks), receives top-level instructions to undertake an unusual mission: to rescue Private James Ryan (Matt Damon) whose three brothers have all been killed in action. As the soldiers forge deeper into enemy territory, they begin to question the sense of risking life and limb for the sake of one man.
The cast also includes Vin Diesel, Tom Sizemore and Ted Danson.
