IFTA - Competition

Preview Screening Competition – American Sniper

Ahead of the release of Clint Eastwood’s critically acclaimed new release American Sniper, IFTA and Warner Bros have teamed up to offer tickets for an exclusive preview screening of the film in Dublin’s Cineworld on Wednesday January 14th at 6.30pm.

American Sniper stars Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.  But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.  

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms.  His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.”  However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents.  He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.  

Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.”  But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind. 

The film, which has been tipped for Oscar success has already won the National Board of Review for Best Director and has been cited by the American Film Institute as one of the Top 10 Films of the year.
