I believe it is going to be a great movie.
Paramount is currently set to unspool Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” for guilds and critics’ groups in December.

Here is story of an intimate part of Jolie’s life.
Zamperini’s daughter, Cynthia Garris, recalled a particularly stormy day in New South Wales, Australia when sunlight was desperately needed to shoot an important scene.

It stopped raining. The sun came out, a rainbow came out. She said, ‘Let’s get this take,’ [and] they shot the take. When she said ‘cut,’ it started to rain again.”
Jolie, said Garris, was moved by Zamperini’s faith. Garris believes it was part of God’s plan for Jolie “to find Louie and make this movie to find her way to a life that would encompass the Almighty.”
Much to learn here about human nature and how we deal with one another! God forgive us for what we did to the helpless Japanese!
I am very fond of the Japanese especially the Christ followers there who are a tiny minority. Here is a beautiful display of love for others as they reach out to and greet their brothers and sisters in Kampala, Uganda.
Who can you reach out to and bless today?
