Film Review: Documentary Looks at True Story of Pat Tillman's Death

In 2002, Pat Tillman left a career in the NFL to serve his country as a U.S. Army Ranger. It ended in tragedy when Tillman was killed by friendly fire in the hills of Afghanistan. It's the cover-up about the actual cause of death, however, that provides the tense action in the new documentary, The Tillman Story. Christy LeMaster, director of The Nightingale and writer for Cine-File, joins Alison Cuddy for a review. They also discuss the rock opera Tommy.
