Trailer trailer



Set during the first days of the Normandy Invasion in World War II, this movie follows the mission of an U.S. Army Ranger squad led by Captain Miller (Tom Hanks) as they try to rescue Private Ryan, a soldier whose three brothers were all recently killed. The movie follows Captain Miller's squad through the hellish landscape of combat against the German Army as they attempt to find Private Ryan. In the climactic scene of the movie, Captain Miller has found Ryan, but is killed trying to rescue him. The movie closes with an elderly Ryan standing at Miller's grave, reassuring him that his sacrifice was worthwhile because he has led a good life.
