INTERVIEW: Director Kimberly Peirce on her Iraq movie “Stop-Loss’

 

Stop-Loss hit theaters this past weekend and IESB had the chance to talk with Kimberly Peirce about the film and the real-life stories behind it.

Before beginning work on Stop Loss directly, Peirce toured the country and interviewed American soldiers and their families. Some of their stories are featured on www.stoplossmovie.com/soundoff, an interactive website that allows military families to join in on the discussion and share their end of the story.

In the film, Peirce balances factual accounts with fictionalized characters, attempting a truth that goes beyond specific accounts.
