Great Movie! You MUST watch!
28 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie several times. After finding this film on Netflix, I loved it so much, I found some copies on Amazon and bought 4 copies to give away. The acting was done beautifully, the singing was awesome, and the reality behind a family's emotional life in the absence of they're beloved service member is so right on point. WOW! That kid can really sing! You will find yourself falling for that kid and rooting for him too. The real love he and his dad share in the film is just amazing! This movie is one of my top three favorites now. What a great tribute to our wonderful troops. There is no greater spirit than the one from our precious American Soldier. This movie provides a glimpse of that...and the end? One of the GREATEST endings ever and completely unpredictable.
