BGN interviews the team behind the Apple Original Film The Greatest Beer Run Ever.
Featured in the interviews are: Peter Farrelly (Director), Zac Efron (John ‘Chickie’ Donohue) and John ‘Chickie’ Donohue the film is based off his life). To show support for his neighborhood friends serving in Vietnam, Chickie Donohue (Zac Efron) decides to do something totally outrageous: travel to the frontline by himself to bring the soldiers a little piece of home — their favorite can of American beer.
However, what started as a well-meaning journey quickly turns into the adventure of a lifetime as Chickie confronts the reality of this controversial war and his reunions with his childhood buddies thrust him into the complexities and responsibilities of adulthood. Based on an incredible true story, The Greatest Beer Run Ever is a heartfelt coming-of-age tale about friendship, loyalty and sacrifice.
