"Least Among Saints".

What a powerful, indie film. It's about a war vet (Iraq?) who comes back and has to  deal with his demons, and a kid next door who's mother ODs. He's determined to help the kid to find his father. One refreshing feature about this movie is everyone looks like real people, not a bunch of Hollywood beauties. This is what Indie films are all about. Great movie.

I have to admit, I love WWII movies. Especially ones based on true stories. This one is based on the life of Perlasca, an Italian cattle trader who was stuck in Budapest during the war. He risked his life and stood up to the Nazis to try to save a number of Jews. He mouthed off and was arrogant to a number of German commanders. What a great story. He kept quiet about what he had done during the war but was recognized years later. I'm sorry I can't find a decent trailer in English. Trust me, you'll love this movie.
