Spotlight: Captured by Grace

December 31st, 2014

Many of you may have seen the recently released movie, Unbroken. While it has received some positive reviews, many thought it did a disservice to the story by leaving some very pivotal moments out at the end of the film. That's why we're spotlighting another film about the story of Louis Zamperini, Louis Zamperini: Captured by Grace. The synopsis for this film reads:

"The movie Unbroken tells the story of Louis Zamperini, a World War II prisoner of war survivor who spent 47 days on a raft in the shark-infested waters of the Pacific Ocean. And while the film details much of Zamperini’s life, including his Olympic career as a distance runner, it only shines a light on part of Zamperini’s gripping story.

Louis Zamperini: Captured By Grace tells the story of life after returning home a hero. Through the power of the Gospel—and his experience at the 1949 Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles—Zamperini overcame alcoholism, night terrors and a failing marriage to live a full and joyous Christ-centered life until his passing at age 97, inspiring millions along the way."
