In 1914, “The Great War” — WW I — began in Europe. By 1917, the Allied powers of France, England, Italy and others were on the ropes against the German juggernaut. While millions of young men were dying overseas, arguing that the freedom of others was none of its business, America chose ... at first ... not to fight.
Some altruistic young Americans disagreed. They volunteered to fight alongside their counterparts in France; some in the infantry, some in the Ambulance Corps. A handful of others had a different idea: they decided to learn how to fly. The first of them — a squadron of only 38 — became known as the Lafayette Escadrille. In time, America joined their cause. The Escadrille pilots became legendary. Flyboys is inspired by their story.
Fighting a war that wasn’t theirs, these young, naive adventure-seekers slowly learned the true meaning of love, brotherhood, heroism, courage and tolerance and, in return, gained a true reason to risk their lives.
Inspired by the true story of the legendary Lafayette Escadrille, Flyboys was directed by Academy Award winner Tony Bill (The Sting) and produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, The Patriot, Stargate) and Marc Frydman (Commander In Chief). James Franco (Spider-Man 1 and 2, Tristan & Isolde) stars with Martin Henderson (The Ring) and Jean Reno (The Pink Panther, The Da Vinci Code).
The epic, heroic score for orchestra and choir was composed by Trevor Rabin.
