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, 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.
