Constant Reminder to the World,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Last Best Hope - A True Story of Escape, Evasion, and Remembrance (DVD)
Although I may be prejudiced because my dad was in the film, I cannot sing the praises of this film enough. This Greatest Generation is so humble - never wanting to call attention to themselves. Yet we all need constant reminders of how precious our freedom is, and what sacrifices these brave men and women made so that WE can live in a free country. I was moved to tears as I watched the film and tried to put myself in the place of the resistance volunteers - would I be as selfless? Everyone needs to view this film over and over again. Without the help of these tireless people, I wouldn't be here. I thank the Belgians for getting my daddy home!
I cannot thank David and Ramona enough for making this film. In telling the story about Bill Grosvenor, they were able to get my father's story for us. How ironic that two of these airmen who didn't know each other while in the prison and who escaped that same day from that train would end up living in the same city? Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Beautiful score, meaningful film.
