Aussie rising stars Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer make love, not war in our first look at stills from indie Vietnam War drama/romance “Love and Honor” (previously “AWOL”).
Initially it had been reported that Austin Stowell plays a soldier dumped by his hometown girlfriend (Aimee Teegarden), with Hemsworth as his best friend who joins him in going AWOL in order to return to the United States to win her back, but that appears to have been backwards. Hemsworth and Palmer are the central romance of the film, if the stills and the first poster are any indication.
The backdrop of the tale is the anti-war movement on the campus of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Danny Mooney directed the film which is tentatively set for release later this year. The stills of Hemsworth and Palmer, which seem to indicate a trailer may be on its way soon, can be seen below, thanks to Just Jared.
