The drama teams Marvel alums Tom Holland and Joe and Anthony Russo in the true life tale of a Iraq War hero who battles PTSD and spirals into addiction and robbing banks upon his return to civilian life.

The film will hit theaters and the streamer on February 26 .

Based on Nico Walker’s novel based on his life story and with a screenplay by Angela Russo-Otstot and Jessica Goldberg, Holland’s Cherry drifts from dropping out of college to serving as an Army medic in Iraq, through it all anchored by his true love Emily (Bravo). But his undiagnosed PTSD spurs bad decisions, shattering his relationship as he falls. Jack Reynor, Michael Rispoli, Jeff Wahlberg, Forrest Goodluck and Michael Gandolfini also star.

The film is a darkly humorous, unflinching coming-of-age story.

It also marks the Russos’ first directing gig since Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing movie of all time. This one they financed themselves — like Walker, the brothers are from Cleveland where this movie is set — via their AGBO production outfit.

Apple is making it a big awards-season play after it acquired worldwide rights to the film in September in a deal in the $40 million range.
