Engaging story, well acted and inspiring
4 May 2012 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

This is a very well crafted story. In the interviews with the actors included on the DVD, Gigi correctly says that without a good story, the best actors and director will fail to make a good movie. She is of course correct and, happily, the actors and direction are excellent as well. The unfolding of the background stories kept me engaged, and I suspect most viewers aren't likely to predict what is going happen next.

The themes of family, patriotism, sibling conflict, bravery, and the place of faith in the lives of real people are, in my estimation, very well done.

It is rare that a movie with a Christian theme comes out so engaging and believable. This movie makes you think about yourself and your own relationships. I challenge any who might think such a movie isn't up their alley to give it a try!
