Unbroken is the real life story of Louis Zamperini, Zamperini was a troubled youth who channeled his mischief into the energy he needed to become an Olympic runner.
Sadly, his time in the spotlight as a runner was cut short with the start of World War 2 and his call to become an airman in the military.
In May 1943, a tragic accident happened during a flight to rescue another group of soldiers. Zamperini’s plane crashed into the ocean. There, the surviving crew did what they could to survive for a grueling 47 days lost at sea.
This story was first recounted in the book, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. Now, comes the movie based on the book…
My wife and I took some time this weekend to catch the war story given the Hollywood treatment.
Honestly, I was more than a little apprehensive.
