“Holly on Hollywood”
By Holly McClure
“Faith of Our Fathers” is a drama about two men who, through old letters and unusual circumstances, take a trip to find out more about the fathers they lost in the Vietnam war. Starring Kevin Downes, David A.R. White and Stephen Baldwin
When John Paul George (yes, his father named him after the Beatles) discovers a box of his dad’s belongings, he realizes he never knew much about his military father or how he died in the war. He travels to the home of Edward Adams, a man who served with his father, but instead finds Edward’s son Wayne, whose father also died in the war. Together they take a road trip to The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to find answers and along the way, learn an even greater lesson about themselves. With the help of an old Sergeant who knew their father’s, they learn how they lived and died, and the legacy of love they left for their sons.
The PG-13 rating is for mature pre-teens to adults because of the mature storyline but there is no objectionable language or content. There are some humorous scenes of a road- trip-gone-bad, serious scenes that deal with grief and themes of faith, sacrifice, loyalty and the love of a father for his son. This is an inspirational tribute to the men and women who have sacrificed themselves for our country and a reminder of the lasting memories, grief and legacy the families are left with. There’s a powerful scene showing both father’s sacrifice for each other, along with a message of God’s love for man and the sacrifice Jesus made to die for our sins.
The last frame of the movie leaves us with John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
Just in time for the 4th of July, check out this fabulous family film…”Faith of Our Fathers”. You will love the inspiration it brings to your whole family, and the gratefulness it will instill!
