To End All Wars

Saw this movie this weekend about prisoners in a Japanese prison camp in WWII. This is an adaptation of a 1963 book that tells the true story of prisoners building a railway that was also the basis for Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). This movie is much more powerful and explores the relationship of justice, forgiveness, self-sacrifice, and the application of the golden rule in a time of war. You can get it on DVD.

The screenplay was written by Brian Godawa, whose web site has more info on the movie and some great movies reviews. Highly recommended.

The movie was recommended to us by good friend and columnist Eric Lapp.
