The way we experience the world around us is a direct reflection of the world within us.
This was a movie that mom wanted to see (mom-able). I liked it too. It was a powerful illustration of the mental strength this man had to endure so much suffering in his life. Soon on Facebook, I saw posts criticizing it because it had left out the most important part of his life, that he was "saved" after going to a Billy Graham revival. Fortunately, there was another article link about how Zamparini's son said that the movie captured his father's faith perfectly.
Here's the last paragraph:
The film version of UNBROKEN does not spend a lot of screen time on his Christian conversion –detailing it in a series of text cards before the closing credits. And that is exactly the way my Dad and our entire family wanted it. As he said in his autobiography, DEVIL AT MY HEELS, “The great commandment is that we preach the gospel to every creature, but neither God nor the Bible says anything about forcing it down people’s throats.”
Reflecting on what I read and consume helps me to secure the gist and relevance of the book, film, or any creative work, into my memory. Sharing my reviews, has potential to turn a self-centered act outward, like book clubs do.
