Unbroken: Path to Redemption

Producer-director Angelina Jolie's well-meaning, Oscar-nominated 2014 biopic gets a belated follow-up with this unofficial, "faith-based" sequel. The original Unbroken followed the story of USA Olympian and American Army officer Louis Zamperini, who survived 47 days in a raft when his bomber crashed into the ocean during World War II. After that he spent time in a series of Asian Prisoner of War camps. What Jolie's film left out—and this sequel makes abundantly clear—is that, following his return to America after the war, Zamperini converted to evangelical Christianity while attending one of Billy Graham's church revivals. None of the original cast returns, but evangelist preacher Will Graham does play his own grandfather. So there's that. 98 minutes PG-13.
