Recommended Movie - Field of Lost Shoes

I am a huge supporter of worthwhile movies.  In fact, I will often go see them in a movie theater and then later buy the DVD just to show my support with the hopes that others will be encouraged to make quality movies that mean something and are more than just mindless entertainment.

Last week, my dear friend was able to attend the red carpet premiere of such a movie called "Field of Lost Shoes." This movie will be released this Friday, 9/26 and she said she highly recommends it. The movie has great ratings and is a family-faith-based film.  The director is Sean McNamara who was also the director for the movie "Soul Surfer" (which was also a wonderful movie).

Here's a little bit about the movie:
"Based on a true story and In the midst of a prolonged and deadly American Civil War in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln appoints a very different kind of general, Ulysses S. Grant, Chief of Union Forces.  Grant acts decisively.  He brings total war to the pristine Shenandoah Valley, breadbasket of the South. The superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) volunteers to send the Corps of Cadets to protect the valley.  A group of 274 young cadets must confront the horrors of an adult world when they are called upon to defend the Shenandoah Valley and marched northward toward the strategic valley choke-point of New Market.  On the day of battle, Confederate General John C. Breckenridge, former Vice President of the United States, and commander of southern forces in Valley, is faced with a horrible decision.  When Southern forces are jeopardized, he orders these young cadets into battle, leaving behind their youth, making the grave decision of what they are truly fighting for."

The movie has some fabulous actors and actresses in it like the following:
Nolan Gould (from Modern Family)
Love this guy!

Lauren Holly
Tom Skerritt
David Arquette 

FYI - Around November 2015, another positive movie will be released called "Starting Over."  I will post more about that one next year.
