After a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, Olympian Louis Zamperini spends a harrowing 47 days in a raft with two fellow crewmen before he’s caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. —IMDB

A good, clean, straightforward piece of storytelling. Understated in its violence but still conveying the horror of what Louis Zamperini went through. Acting is good on the part of all cast. An inspirational journey with a courageous man. This directorial outing of Angelina Jolies shows that she is good at picking stories that resonate with the deep themes of human existence. It has the feel of an old style movie but lush with contemporary cinematography. A very enjoyable and satisfying movie.
