I only care because I wish more people could have experienced it. I think if they did then they would fall in love with it too. I think it has a great deal of important things to say. It reminds me so much of my favorite director’s work, Frank Capra. It’s even set in the era that he worked in…the 1940s.
Here are some of my favorite scenes and why they were so special. Please try to rent the movie sometime and share what you think in the comments. If you did see it, then perhaps see it again and tell me if you still feel the same way about it. I think it will be even more special because of the new era of change we’re experiencing so full of hope.
Here’s the trailer
The Letter scene is one of my favorite cinematic moments ever. It might seem corny to some but I am moved even now by it. This is why I want our boys and girls back home, safe and sound with their loved ones. This is why I love and respect everyone who has ever served our country as well as their family members who had to deal with their loss. God bless them all.
Sadly, they removed the video clip!!! I will find another one of the scene or upload my own someday.
The Speech scene to congress is another powerful and moving experience. It addressed the red scare that plagued Hollywood in the 1950s and destroyed many careers and even lives but it was also much more than that. It’s about how great our country was and can still be if we remember how to work together again as the United States of America.
