Coming Home

FRANCIE: We were just discussing Homecoming. Thoughts?
RORY: Great movie. Oh wait, that was Coming Home. Sorry.

The tradition of Homecoming, previously discussed.

Coming Home is a 1978 romantic drama war film starring Jane Fonda and Jon Voigt, in a love triangle story between Sally, the wife of a Marine Corps Captain deployed in Vietnam (played by Bruce Dern), and Luke, a young man who has returned from the war a paraplegic. He and Sally meet at the veteran’s hospital where Sally is volunteering. It has an excellent soundtrack of late 1960s songs.

The film received good reviews, and was popular with audiences. It is still regarded as one of the best dramatic films ever made.
