LDS Movie Review ~ Freetown + giveaway!

Caught in the middle of a brutal civil war, six Liberian missionaries in Monrovia flee the widespread violence in their native country. Their destination: Freetown, Sierra Leone. With the help of local church member Phillip Abubakar (Henry Adofo), the missionaries make the difficult journey, only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own. Based on incredible true events, FREETOWN is a thrilling and inspiring story of faith, hope and survival.

My thoughts:  I loved the inspirational message of this movie.  The people who lived the events behind this movie faced ordeals that tested them physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I don't think you can watch this movie without it touching you.

The scenes were set beautifully.  I loved the imagery.  The only thing that I found difficult was following the heavy accents.  I turned on the captioning to follow the story better.  That worked for me.

The movie deals with a civil war, there is violence.  It is not graphic, but the nature of it is disturbing.  I think that was one of the points of the movie.

The giveaway is for entrants with a US address.  See terms and conditions to the right.  There will be two copies given away by Deseret Book.  I will forward winners information to them and they are responsible for sending out the DVD.  Two copies will be given away, that means two winners.
