This dramatic look at the end of the Pacific efforts of World War II from director Peter Webber (Hannibal Rising) focuses on General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox) as he’s charged with deciding the fate of the Japanese emperor — whether or not he should be executed as a war criminal — while attempting to find an exchange student he met in the US. Looming large over the proceedings, though, is General Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones), which means that Jones will likely draw a great deal of attention from Fox and the routine aspects of the plot. Who (or what) will end up ruling the screen remains to be seen. Now open in select theaters. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
