made me cry
8 December 2018 | by mbl-82007See all my reviews

This was a beautiful movie. While i didn't have any previous knowledge of the topics in this movie, I still felt connected to it. I felt as if many of the struggles of the characters are similar to struggles that people in the US have faced.

This was a very timely movie for me. Even though I'm not in the active military, I could related, to some extent, to the internal, emotional hardships of the characters. For example, A big theme of the movie is the struggle of transitioning from the innocence of an adolescent mindset to the mindset of an adult that begins to understand the sorrows, travesties, and desires of the world.

Throughout the movie, I found myself thinking of times where my own worldview has been shaped, molded, and refined. It makes the world feel a little smaller and more cohesive when you realize that human emotions are universal, and that people from all over the world, with many different beliefs, lifestyles, and motivations, feel anger, love, and disappointment all the same.
