Unbroken: Path to Redemption IN THEATERS OCTOBER 5, 2018
SYNOPSIS: After surviving a plane crash, weeks of floating on a makeshift raft in the Pacific, and then years of torture as a prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini finally returns home to California, seemingly unbroken. When the war ended, his battle began.
Based on Laura Hillenbrand’s bestselling book, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION begins where the hit movie Unbroken concludes, continuing the unbelievable true story of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini. Haunted by nightmares of his torment, Louie sees himself as anything but a hero. Despite battling demons, anger, and alcohol, Louie feels obligated to participate in an Army tour to raise money for War Bonds. But as he focuses more on hotel bars than his public appearances, Louie is ordered to take R&R on the beaches of Miami.
There, he meets Cynthia, a young woman who captures his eye—and his heart. After a whirlwind courtship, the couple weds and moves to Los Angeles. While pursuing every avenue of hope he can find—from trying to reestablish himself as a world-class runner to get-rich-quick investment opportunities—Louie’s wrathful quest for revenge drives him deeper into despair ... and the bottle. Hopeless and on the brink of divorce, Cynthia experiences Billy Graham’s 1949 Los Angeles Crusade where she finds faith in God and a renewed commitment to her marriage and her husband.
Now, her most fervent prayer is for God to help Louie find the peace and forgiveness he so desperately needs. From the producer of Unbroken and the writer of A River Runs Through It,UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION stars Samuel Hunt (Louis), Merritt Patterson (Cynthia), David Sakurai (Watanabe, ͞The Bird͟), and Will Graham as his grandfather, Billy Graham. In theaters this fall, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION brings to life the rest of Louis Zamperini’s powerful real-life story of forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace.
I received complimentary tickets.
Cassandra's review- The movie went straight to the heart, with its strong lines of emotional moments. The war scenes and real to life plots would probably trigger someone with PTSD. The whole movie was up and down sad, and due to certain areas where I was personally affected, I did skip through them during my screening. I feel like if you have been in this position in life ever before, the movie will be a different experience for you then it would for someone who is just watching it for entertainment.
