Quotes

[first lines]
Ben Eagle Narrator: [narrating] This is O'Hare, California. Back then it was nothing more than a sleepy fishing village, with a hill at the end of Main Street. Like you see in postcards. My story takes place on the home front, in the midst of World War II. That's me, the little fella.

LOL and COL
25 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I laughed out loud and I cried out loud. This was an amazing, riveting, flawlessly performed film wrapped around one of the most beautiful messages I have ever had the pleasure of being entertained into hearing and believing. I was even more impressed when I with the many plot twists that kept me guessing - I realized at a certain point that there was no predicting in this movie! I had the pleasure of watching a Q&A with the producers and the people behind this film have a great heart and purpose for making this film, which for me is all the more reason for this project to succeed and reach every corner that it can manage to. Moreover, God is in the center of it all and lives were saved and touched in the making of and showing of this film! Thank you for this film - I am so grateful to have enjoyed and I can only hope more can do the same!
