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.
Five years after her husband and daughter are killed in a senseless act of violence, a woman comes back from self-imposed exile to seek revenge against those responsible and the system that let them go free.

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.
The avg. IMDB star rating for this movie is suffering due to the older audience this movie appeals to. I've seen perfectly grammatically correct reviews praising this movie, frankly raving about it, yet they only gave the movie 3 or so stars. I think some older folks are new to IMDB and don't understand how its star rating system works. 10 stars is good and 1 star is bad.
Anyway, the detail in the PTSD depiction was amazingly accurate and Samuel Hunt is an exceptional actor. I loved this movie for the accuracy in that. I understand the disappointment one Christian expressed over the minor coverage of what changed Zamperini's mind, convincing him to stop hating and blaming God, but to instead trust Him. As an atheist, I certainly didn't mind the short treatment of this, but I will point out that Pure Flix has gotten lots of heat for dedicating full movies to trying to persuade atheists. They've probably learned not to do that. Even another IMDB reviewer didn't like how preachy this movie still is, as though the aim should be for Christian studios to make movies that are indistinguishable from those of secular studios. I certainly don't expect that.
Another reviewer dedicated their entire review of this movie to insulting Pure Flix for its previous movies which were dedicated to persuading atheists. Some atheists think movies where an atheist is a villain should never exist, even if atheists are also good guys in the same movie. So I'll grant that you Christians were quite mature about Monty Python movies, Carrie, the Shawshank Redemption, and many of Universal's recent anti-Christian movies like the highly fictionalized Boy Erased, but I just don't think many atheists are quite ready to return that favor to you. Sorry. :-/
