Cherry is based on a novel by Nico Walker, which is loosely based on his life. The movie tackles subjects like addiction and PTSD, more specifically, how those two things may impact veterans.
“Tom Holland plays a young Cleveland man who, after being spurned by the love of his life, joins the army before she returns to tell him she has made a mistake and they belong together. He becomes an Army medic in Iraq and sees violence and carnage no one should. Returning with a raging case of undiagnosed PTSD, he is prescribed the opiate Oxycontin. Soon, he and his young wife move from pills to heroin, and he turns to robbing banks to pay their debts and feed their habit. Walker’s young wife is played by Ciara Bravo”
Holland previously worked with Joe and Anthony Russo in Captain America: Civil War, Infinity War, and Endgame. Apple will open “Cherry” in theaters on February 26 ahead of streaming on Apple TV+ starting on March 12.
