This is one of the most powerful and moving films I have ever watched. Based on a true story, Taking Chance follows Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl who volunteers to escort the remains of 19-year-old PFC Chance Phelps USMC killed in Iraq to his family in a small Wyoming town.
It will no doubt win at the Emmys, but it's a crime that this film is not eligible for an Oscar because it would walk away with several. Kevin Bacon is magnificent. The screenplay is flawless. The entire film is a work of art.
Taking Chance needs to be seen by every American.
Thank you PFC Phelps, from a grateful nation.
