It’s the beginning of the 4th of July weekend! It’s the perfect time to sit down with your family, get out some popcorn, and enjoy a great movie! Not just any movie, though. Here’s a film that displays the courage, heroism, and sacrifice of American soldiers in World War II. Here is the synopsis of Saving Private Ryan!
Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Surrounded by the brutal realties of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency, and courage.
While Saving Private Ryan has become a classic, and beloved among many American families, it is important to be cautious, especially when viewing the film with small children. Unlike most Disney movies, this one includes a large amount of profanity and violence. Some say it is necessary for a war film. Others say inappropriate content is never necessary in order to create art and entertainment. Whatever the case, as Christians we should use discernment when watching films like these.
Please enjoy the trailer, and have a fantastic 4th of July weekend!
