The other night we borrowed Flags of our Fathers from the library. We watched it after the kids went to bed, with the closed captioning on. We have a very old and dinky T.V., and though we were given a surround sound system we can hardly use it to its potential because we always watch movies after the kids are in bed. Anyhow. . .
This is the kind of story that we both enjoy. The war scenes are gruesome, but I guess that is to be expected. I really didn't know a whole lot about the movie before we borrowed it except that it was about WWII. The film is based on a book written by the son of one of the soldiers that were photographed raising the flag at Iwo Jima. I had not heard the story surrounding that photo before. I think I will have to add the book to my reading list.
