Note: I have not previewed this movie so this is information, NOT a review.
Here’s a movie at Cinema Nouveau Theatres many South African men of my generation will find that they can relate to : ‘Thank you for your service’.
It is a tale of courage, love and sacrifice for one’s country told as a soldier returns to civilian life. It is almost certainly a weepie as we follow the life of Sergeant Adam Schumann after a stint in Iraq. Other characters include Tausolo Aeiti who was left with brain injury after a bombing, and Michael Emory who took a bullet in the head, while Will Waller has PTSD. Physical and emotional recovery is part of the readjustment to civilian life.
The movie’s producer, John Kilik, says “We took great care, because these are people’s lives, and there was tragedy that came along with it – we had to treat everything with the utmost respect, always. In the end, we are telling a story of incredible strength and courage.
“Thank you for your service” is showing ONLY at Cinema Nouveau Theatres from 05 January 2018.
