To End All Wars

I just finished watching “To End All Wars”, a movie retelling the true story of POWs who endure horrible treatment from their Japanese captors during WW II while being forced to build a railroad through the Burmese jungle.  They find freedom through forgiveness.  It is based on the true story of Ernest Gordon. 

As with any POW-based movie it is often difficult to watch.  What makes it all the more difficult to watch is knowing that it is true, not a figment of someones story-telling imagination.  But while it may be difficult to watch, there are themes and lessons that are too powerful to describe…they simply must be seen and felt.   This movie is deeply moving and just may affect your life. 

Here’s a 10 minute documentary on the film featuring Keifer Sutherland and others connected to the movie.
