Unbroken: Path to Redemption Synopsis:
Beginning where the hit movie Unbroken concludes, the next chapter brings the rest of Louis Zamperini’s inspirational true story to life. After surviving years of torture as a prisoner of war, Louis (Hunt) returns home from World War II, where he meets and marries Cynthia (Patterson). Haunted by his past, he is driven deep into despair. But when Cynthia turns to God at the 1949 Billy Graham Crusade, her most fervent prayer for Louis is to find peace and forgiveness. Based on Laura Hillenbrand’s bestselling book, Unbroken: Path to Redemption is a “beautiful, beautiful film” (Kathie Lee Gifford, Today Show).
Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directed and produced this epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived on a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII – only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s enormously popular book, it’s the inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.
BONUS: Switchfoot perform’s ‘You Found Me’ from the film’s soundtrack at the CCM Magazine office.
