A few months ago I was introduced to the movie, Faith of Our Fathers when I was invited to an early preview. Unfortunately, I wasn’t available to make it to the preview so I am glad that today I can bring you the DVD.
About Faith of Our Fathers
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.
Mom Maven’s Thoughts
My husband and I watched Faith of Our Fathers together the other night. While the first half of the movie is a bit slow, it is a good story. I can’t imagine growing up not knowing my father. There are many people in my generation who lost their fathers in Vietnam and that is a fact I never even stopped to consider since it didn’t touch me directly. Life is a journey and in this movie John Paul and Wayne go one a journey that is physical, mental and spiritual as they road trip together. This is a Pure Flix movie so thankfully, while there are war scenes and themes everything is handled delicately and there is nothing offensive in the movie.
