SAVING PRIVATE RYAN: Seen through the eyes of American soldiers, the story begins with WWII's historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as men embark on a dangerous special mission. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) must take his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Faced with impossible odds, the men begin to question their orders: why are eight men risking their lives to save just one?
