Very Good. Let me start by saying this is not a feel good typical Hollywood movie. It’s a very sad and disturbing war story. This is a compelling true story that is so disturbing that it’s difficult to watch at times.
After I saw this I was thinking about putting myself in the shoes of the lead character, and there is not a snowballs chance in hell that I would be able to forgive and movie on. This is a story about inner strength, redemption, forgiveness, and the depth of the human spirit. The acting was top shelf all the way around. I think this is a must see but you really need to know that some of the scenes are so painful to watch. After watching this movie you will appreciate the good life we have. This is one of the better movies I’ve seen this year.
