Born on the Fourth of July
An impassioned, career-defining performance from Tom Cruise doesn't stop John Williams making his mark on this war drama too. "Based on Ron Kovic's biography, the acclaimed film follows a zealous teen who eagerly volunteers for the Vietnam War, to an embittered veteran paralysed from the mid-chest down.
Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returned to an environment vastly different from the one he left, and struggled before emerging as a brave new voice for the disenchanted.
John Williams scored this soundtrack on one of his rare collaborations away from Stephen Spielberg. Five times Oscar winner, he lost out that year to The Little Mermaid."
