Brad Pitt offers a take on General Stanley McChrystal in War Machine, an Afghan war satire that releases on Netflix in May.

Pitt plays the role of a US General and polarizing war figure who stepped in to command NATO forces in Afghanistan but was taken down by a journalist’s exposé.

The movie is based on the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings.

David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) directs what Netflix calls “an absurdist look at a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly.” Pitt’s co-stars include Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall and Topher Grace.

War Machine releases May 26.
