A movie from Lucasfilm Ltd productions and a story by executive producer George Lucas. Red Tails is based on the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American combat pilots during World War II.
At 1944, World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program were waging two wars at once – one against enemies overseas, and the other against racial discrimination within their own military household. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his pilots back at base, leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills. While their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training.
The Tuskegee pilots were assigned to only second-rate planes and missions, they have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. As the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon has no other choice but to reconsider to use these pilots for combat duty. When the young Tuskegee are about to be sent back home, Colonel AJBullard (Terrence Howard) gives them a chance to test their nerves of steel.
Red Tails is Starring by Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Bryan Cranston, Brandon T. Jackson and Nate Parker and directed by Anthony Hemingway.
