Me, Monty, Forrest, and some of his friends from Sunday School just got back from seeing the movie, "Courageous". My eyes are swollen from the tears that drained from them during the film. I absolutely give it two "tissue boxes" up! The sleeves of my long sleeve shirt are still damp from wiping my eyes. So glad it was a thermal...more absorbent.
If you are a child on this earth that has a father...yes, that's everyone, then you will find this movie beyond touching. Children with doting fathers, absent fathers, part-time fathers, with "father's you've never met", fathers, etc., will find it to be a heart-string-pulling, compelling movie.
Don't expect, "Star Trek", effects, "Die Hard", action or "Rocky-like," sequels. Do expect to smile, laugh, shed a tear,(or a couple hundred), and be inspired by the thought provoking, beautiful, small budget, story . There should be more movies made like, "Courageous."
If you don't catch it at the theaters, please check it out on DVD when it is released.
