When a forest catches fire, professionals can’t drown it in water or put it out as they might a burning building. Instead, the goal is to contain the inferno by establishing a control line that the advancing flames cannot cross — a strategy of “fighting fire with fire” that falls to an elite group of so-called “hotshots,” who’ve been uniquely certified to approach the unpredictable beast.
“Only the Brave” is the true story of one such handcrew, the Granite Mountain Hotshots, and their journey from a local Arizona firefighting team to the front lines of the Yarnell Hill Fire, one of the country’s deadliest wildfires. Picture “Backdraft” set against a backdrop of unspoiled American wilderness: It’s a gripping and powerfully emotional portrait of yee-haw heroism, pitting a squad of cocky, calendar-purty white dudes against an adversary with no creed or color, just an unquenchable appetite for destruction.
