This film is a must see for everyone. My mother and I went to see this movie as a last minute decision. We really didn't know a whole lot about it but just decided we would go ahead and take a chance. WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID. This is by far the best movie we have ever seen. It really shows the values that this country is based on and should be continuously built on. I cannot wait until it is available on DVD for purchase.
I also have to point out that we were given the opportunity that night to meet with some of the actors and the wonderful young actress in this movie. They are truly exceptional people. These weren't what we believed to be the typical "movie stars". They were real people, real American people with a heart.
Thank you Doughboy family for a wonderful and moving film.
