Faith of Our Fathers on DVD #review & #giveaway #FAITHOFOURFATHERS #FLYBY

**I received this DVD for free for review purposes**



About the movie:
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers.  Problem is...their fathers have been dead for 25 years.  Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons...whom they've never met.  In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades.  They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers' names.  Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.  Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys.  The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam.  Ultimately, in parallel stories - 25 years apart - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.  

Starring: Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte, and Sean McGowan.

My thoughts:
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.  It had a lot of what I look for in a good movie. It's funny, heartbreaking, thoughtful and full of suspense.  It was also unlike any other movie have seen.  I really liked how each character was portrayed and the storyline held my attention. I don't want to ruin anything, so I won't go into a lot of details, but it's a pretty amazing story.  If you have the chance to see it, you should definitely take the time to watch it.

The premise of Faith of Our Fathers sounds very interesting to me. I would love to win it so I can see it as I believe I would really enjoy watching it, especially since I typically really like movies that are centered around father/son relationships. I also like films where characters living in the past and present are connected somehow and Faith of Our Fathers certainly has characters like that. Thanks for the fantastic opportunity to win!
