Directed by Angelina Jolie and starring brit actor Jack O Connell in the title role, Unbroken tells the story of Louis Zamperini - a troublemaker turned Olympic athlete turned soldier turned PoW turned hero.
The film is intense, well acted, beautifully handled, and nearly made me cry about 6 times throughout...And trust me when I say me nearly crying at a film is kind of a big deal. What makes it even more amazing is the Zamperini went through all that and came out the other end as a strong, forgiving, inspirational human being.
Instead of harbouring hate, he rose above it and found forgiveness for his captors.
I would go see it again in a heartbeat and his book's are definitely going in my Amazon basket.
