It’s November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble.
But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion. Dogfight is based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort.
When you just met your co-star last week, how do you learn to act like you're in love? We asked Dogfight stars Lindsay Mendez and Derek Klena how they "fell for each other."
