The Mikes are building a tree house with Elijah Wood in 1970 rural Mississippi in 1994's The War this week's Forgotten Cinema.

Listen in as Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss this film which also stars Kevin Costner. Butler has an issue with the bookended narration by one of the younger characters because it doesn't match her "voice." Field disagrees.

They also talk about the themes of the film, who the target audience is and both of their surprise that other than a young Elijah Wood, none of the other young actors continued in the business as many of them are fantastic actors.
