Storyline: John Paul moves into his mom's house after she passed away. While sorting through her accumulated boxes, he finds a box labelled keep. Looking through it he discovers memorabilia concerning his dad who died during the Vietnam War. He learns his dad had a friend so looks him up discovering the friends' son instead.
Events unfold leading to a road trip to the Vietnam memorial.... Going the long way around. The son of the friend proves to be somewhat a difficult character for straight-laced John Paul. They both learn much about themselves and each other as they journey to the Memorial Wall.
We got to watch the voyage of the sons while watching short vignettes of their fathers during the war. Helping us to understand the pain of the war, along with hard-won friendships, loyalty and so much more. There is a strong Christian theme throughout the entire movie.
What did I think?
I thought the movie Faith Of Our Fathers DVD 2015 Edition was overall well done. :)
I liked it enough that I have chosen to share this movie with my extended family.
I appreciated the good cinematography. The interaction between the actors, the growth exhibited by both as they learned important lessons throughout the movie. Their solemnity as they were at the Memorial wall. Good stuff this.
I thought the portrayal of the fathers and their actions during the war to be interesting. To see how they overcame fear, stood by their comrades and developed firm friendships.
Was it one of the best movies I've ever seen? No. It was worth seeing though. Giving an interesting perspective on faith during difficult times and how people can persevere even if they don't want to or they are pushed by folk they don't necessarily like very much but through it all becoming more of the people God wants them to be.
