“War Eagle, Arkansas” is a quiet, simple drama about two high school buddies in the smallest of small towns.
One boy is called “Wheels,” a wise-cracking clown with cerebral palsy. The other is Enoch, a talented baseball player afflicted with a stutter.
They’re both trapped in their own ways, but Enoch’s talent is giving him the option to move on and move out . . . but he doesn’t want to leave his friend behind.
The movie, which features Brian Dennehy in a supporting role, is bolstered by strong performances, especially Dan McCabe as Wheels.
