Everyman Billy Pilgrim (Sacks) has become unstuck in time, zipping back and forth across his life’s most important events: his childhood, his marriage, his abduction by aliens to the planet Tralfamadore, and, most significantly, his days as a prisoner-of-war before and after the horrific bombing of Dresden, Germany. Kurt Vonnegut enthusiastically praised director Hill’s very faithful adaptation of his most famous novel, a deeply personal, beautifully absurd science-fiction/anti-war hybrid.
