A flick where Tom Cruise is not attractive? Where he’s confined to a wheel chair for the most of the film and a horny drunk to boot? Yeah, that film exists and it’s “Born on the Fourth of July” — directed by Oliver Stone and based on the autobiography of real-life Vietnam vet Ron Kovic. A Marine who returned home a paraplegic, Kovic became one of the most visible — and credible — figures in the anti-war movement. The 1989 film is remembered for depicting paralysis and physical therapy in unusual detail, including emotionally difficult scenes in which Kovic and a fellow vet rampage drunk and wheel-chair bound, with nowhere to unload their sense of rage and impotence.
