This is such an amazing story. I always enjoy a good war movie fiction or not and this really is one of the ones at the top of the tier. The acting, the plot, the characters, and the cinematography are all phenomenal aspects of this heart-wrenching movie. Asa Butterfield shows he has skills at such a young age. We know he is gonna to be an amazing adult actor one day. Vera Farmiga and David Thewli... read more
