Movie Review & Giveaway: Faith of Our Fathers

Faith of Our Fathers (2015)
Runtime: 96 minutes
Genre: Drama
Rating: PG-13 (for brief war violence)
Starring: Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte, and Sean McGowan.

About the movie: 
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers. Problem is...their fathers have been dead for 25 years. Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons...whom they've never met. In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades. They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.

In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers' names. Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died. Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys. The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam. Ultimately, in parallel stories - 25 years apart - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.

My thoughts:

Faith of Our Fathers was a touching movie and really enjoyable to watch. The acting was good, as was the storyline. I liked the parallel stories and how we got to see firsthand what had happened to their fathers in the war. The final scenes were very emotional

All in all, I really liked this film and recommend it if you are looking for a good inspirational movie. It was great!

  6. I was really thinking this might be a good gift for my parents over the holidays! I would probably enjoy it to, and hopefully we would have time to sit down and watch it together over the Christmas season.

  7. I used to think that stories with a Vietnam theme were too depressing to read. However, now I find them very interesting and I think everyone should look beyond the actual war aspect and look at the human side of the story which this movie appears to do very well.

  8. I enjoy hybrid historical/contemporary books so this movie sounds like one I would like. The premise is intriguing and being from a military family also makes it an appealing film.
