Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Unbroken: Path To Redemption
A Reel Leadership Article
In 2014, Angelina Jolie directed the amazing Unbroken movie. Unbroken told the fascinating story of Louis “Louie” Zamperini.
Louie was always in trouble. That’s when his older brother, Pete, steps in and takes him under his wing. Pete trains Louie to become an Olympic runner.
When World War 2 happened, Louie had to give up his dreams of becoming an Olympic champion. He had a war to fight. He left his friends and families to fight against the looming threat.
The unthinkable happened when his plane was downed over the ocean. Louie spent 47 days adrift in a raft. When he was rescued from the raft, he was put into a Japanese POW camp where he and other soldiers were tortured by the maniacal Watanabe ‘The Bird’.
Unbroken: Path To Redemption takes place after the horrors Louie experienced in Unbroken. Yet the horrors never left Louie. He brought them home and has to fight for his redemption.
