ABOUT THE MOVIE:
This heartwarming movie tells the story of a local war hero whose son goes off to war. His new wife brings Christian, his first son, in to the world while the young hero is away at war earning medals for valor. However, the tragedy that ensues on a cruel battlefield will change everyone's life forever as Tom Revere is laid to rest giving his ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
Fourteen years pass and the young baby grows to be a teenager (Christian Revere) who, with his mother (Carrie Revere), comes back to the small town of Mount Columbus nestled in the Rocky Mountains during the holiday season to be with his family. Christian disconnects with his grandfather (Bob Revere) as they both are going through the pain of losing a Dad and the loss of a son by Bob. In this beautiful story of love and forgiveness, they discover a way to unite and to make a difference in their community by claiming their freedom of expression. (courtesy of IMDB.com)
Overall, the message of the movie is one that will resonant with many during this heated political time. Bob Revere’s belief is that our country’s freedoms were won by sacrifice, hard work and persistence, and should be held dear.
This movie does have its flaws – the acting is sometimes stilted and the dialogue between teens and adults is at times stiff and contrived. It’s not believable. And there are a few disturbing war scenes that will be hard to watch for some.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone needing an extra jolt of what it means to be an American! Yes, it's emotional, but maybe that's what is needed now more than ever!
