After a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, Olympian Louis Zamperini spends a harrowing 47 days in a raft with two fellow crewmen before he's caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
The extraordinary true story of Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife Heather. When war etches battle scars on their hearts, they face one more battle: the fight to save their marriage. One marriage, one family, under God.
Against the backdrop of high school football and track, two brothers in a small Southern town face escalating problems with two different world views, straining - but ultimately strengthening - the bonds of brotherhood.
The movie traces three real-life incidents that took place in '80s, 90s and 2000s respectively through the stories titled 'Orphan and the Convict', 'The Farmer and the Nun' and 'The Terror and the Mom'.
When the war ended, his battle began. Based on Laura Hillenbrand's bestselling book, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION begins where Unbroken ends, sharing the next amazing chapter of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini's powerful true story of forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace.
I have both suffered from PTSD, but have also have experienced the same redepemptive power of Christ, and this story was so relatable on so many levels. If you, too, have been in a similar boat, I think you'll discover how true to life this movie is. Nothing is sugar coated or glorified, it simply tells to story of exactly what it is like and the real struggle of PTSD. I found myself weeping at the end, recalling my own fears, struggles, and journey.
And as far as a Pure Flix film, this one was remarkably well done. The pacing felt right, the score wasn't over bearing, the acting professional. I suppose if Christian movies isn't your thing, then this isn't the right movie for you, but in regards to its cinematic quality alone, this movie is very well put together.
