The Deer Hunter is a 1978 American war drama about a trio of Russian American steelworkers whose lives are changed forever after they fought in the Vietnam War.

Michael (Robert De Niro), Nick (Christopher Walken) and Steven (John Savage) are lifelong friends from a working-class Pennsylvania steel town.

They prepare to ship out overseas following Steven’s elaborate wedding and one final group hunting trip.

However when they arrive in Vietnam their dreams of military honour are quickly shattered by the inhumanities of war.

The film won five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director for Michael Cimino and Best Supporting Actor.

It was also Streep’s first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
