Story


BUFFALO SOLDIERS is a darkly comic story of one soldier's misadventures in the military.

Set on a an American Army base in West Germany, as the Berlin Wall is about to fall, BUFFALO SOLDIERS chronicles the exploits of military clerk Ray Elwood (JOAQUIN PHOENIX). Stationed on the base in the midst of peacetime, with little to do thanks to the thaw of the Cold War and lack of any other world conflict, Elwood is the ultimate risk-taker; a high-stakes arms dealer, a burearucratic con artist, and a shrewd collector of other people's secrets. He's used his access to goods and equipment - everything from Mop 'n' Glo to heavy artillery-to-forge a lucrative career on the black market.

But just as Elwood is poised to pull off the biggest deal of his career, an obstacle appears: his new top sergeant Robert Lee (SCOTT GLENN), a tough Vietnam vet intent upon doing some housecleaning. Now, to keep his winning streak alive, Elwood must divert his powers of charm and calculation towards a new target - the sergeant's alluring daughter (ANNA PAQUIN).

Directed by Gregor Jordan, the film also stars Ed Harris, Gabriel Mann, Leon Robinson, Dean Srockwell, and Elizabeth McGovern.
