‘Faith of Our Fathers’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
1969 Vietnam, Fighting side by side, Steven George and Eddie Adams couldn’t be more different. Steven is a little shy but a friendly guy, not really aggressive by nature. Nicknamed “Preacher Boy”, he finds that talking about life and the people back home helps him pass the time. To Eddie, making friends and chatting about home is a waste of time. If he thinks about life, then he might have to think about death, and that’s something he’s not prepared or willing to do.
1997 – Visalia – Growing up without a father, John Paul George has decided to put his questions regarding his father’s life and death in the Vietnam War to rest. After digging up some clues John, despite his persistent fiancés discouragements, sets out on a weekend getaway looking for answers. When John encounters Wayne Adams, this weekend getaway turns into a life changing road trip.
In between getting arrested, picking up hitchhikers and avoiding fights (or not avoiding them as the case may be), these two men discover that despite their differences, they need each other to get the answers they’ve each been searching for their whole life.
This film really spoke to me about fathers and how important their roles are in their children’s lives. Also the influence of the faith of a Christian on others, especially in a time of war.
Even with some humor throughout, this is a serious film that makes you think. It’s so important that surviving parents share as much as they can with their children about their mom or dad that passed away. It’s heartbreaking to think about all those that are left in the dark about the truth…whether in the military or not.
We have to ask what legacy are we really leaving for our children. ‘Faith of our Fathers’ shows the journey two men take to find out the truth about their fathers and what legacy their fathers left them.
