The Movie ‘Unbroken’ Left Me Speechless
I got to attend an advanced screening of "Unbroken" last night and it was probably the most powerful movie I have seen in a hot minute.
Lucky me, I got to see Angelina Jolie's new movie, "Unbroken" before it comes out on Christmas Day.
Now usually with movies I love to gab about them all the way home. Hello, I studied film in college. But this one left me speechless.
Being married to a military man, a lot of the film hit close to home. And without dropping too many spoiler alerts, the movie made me reevaluate who I am as a person. I mean, the film is about Louie Zamperini's life. He was an Olympic athlete who enlisted in the Air Force in 1941. Soon after he found himself serving in World War II, where he was captured by the Japanese. He essentially went through hell as a prisoner of war for years.
But he never let his circumstances break him.
I really don't want to ruin the movie for you, so just go see it. Honestly, it was really well done and I'm willing to bet it will require you to take a few moments of silence to process it too.
