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 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'.
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.
A movie about the crimes and trial of Kermit Gosnell, an American doctor and abortion provider who was convicted of killing three fetuses and the involuntary manslaughter of a woman who died during a procedure.
When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.
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 almost didn't go see this movie because of the terrible ratings. I'm glad I analyzed them enough to make a good decision to see this film which we enjoyed very much.
Politics has no place in Hollywood; films are created to entertain the viewer. I do not go see films based on personal beliefs and can accept and can even feel pleasure in seeing other people overcome their demons and find happiness in whatever positive manner positive. I'm not a believe in religion but am a believer in what works for those who do.
The story needed what happened and being that this is a "true story," it shouldn't be rewritten to make people more tolerating and compassionate.
Religion - Christianity
I believe a lot of people will miss out on a truly heart breaking and inspiring movie due to the ratings because some subject matters triggered viewers who are not tolerable of beliefs that differ from their own which is a shame.
I predicted the ending but I'm thankful that I was correct as it was what I wanted to happen. I could relate to many situations in this movie. However, my story and methods were different but with the same outcome. Fighting and not giving up is all that matters, How people obtain their freedom and happiness is not to be judged.
Go see the movie, shed a tear or two and smile.
