    Has Anyone Seen the movie Taking Chance OMG TEARJERKER

    Advertisements
    Its about the Marine Chance Phelps who was killed in 04 in Iraq and the COL who volunteered to escort his body home and wrote about experience being an escort and how deep it became for him.r
    I cried to so hard through this movie and so did my husband.

    Just curious had anyone else seen it and what there thoughts were.

    Kevin Bacon was the star of it.

    It was on HBO but I rented it.

    Amen to that .

    I think Kevin Bacon really played his part well.

    It made very proud as well.

    I recorded it when it first came on HBO. It took me several days to actually watch it because I was pregnant at the time and I was crying over everything and I knew I'd really start bawling when I watched it. It was such an amazing movie!

    That was such a great movie, so wonderfully done. Not really what I wanted to see right before my husband left, lol, but such a great movie.
