By Maria Esteves - November 27, 2009

The 29th CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival 2009  (CMJFF09) Closing Night Premiere of THE MESSENGER, written and directed by Oren Moverman, was held at the Chelsea Clearview Cinema, New York, Friday, October 23, 7:30 pm.

THE MESSENGER , winner of 2009 Berlin Film Festival for Best Screenplay, and Best Peace Film awards, 2009 Deauville American Film Festival for International Critics Prize, and Grand Prize awards, now playing at the Lincoln Plaza Cinema, New York

THE MESSENGER is a powerful and heartfelt Iraq War film about a wounded Army war hero Staff Sgt. Will Montgomery (Ben Foster) who is reassigned to the Army's casualty-notification service under the supervision of Capt. Tony Stone (Woody Harrelson), a veteran of the first Persian Gulf war. Together they bring the overwhelming unwelcome
news to family members in their homes that a loved one has passed away in
combat. This compassionate film genuinely reveals the complexities of war.
