Unbroken, the hit new movie directed by Angelina Jolie, is a study in strength, perseverance, faith and victory.  Tony Lobl, a spiritual thinker, writer, lecturer and colleague, observes that although the movie is inspirational it leaves out a crucial component to the outcome of this amazing journey.  Let’s join Tony and find out more about the important part that was omitted.

Angelina Jolie has turned Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling biography Unbroken into an inspirational hit movie. But could it have been even more inspiring?

Angelina Jolie’s third outing as a director has been a stirring success.

As an “inspirational film” Unbroken’s Christmas day launch turned into box office gold, taking in almost $50 million dollars in its first few days, according to Variety. It is expected to be right up there in the top three again during the “post-holiday weekend”.

But her biopic has also courted controversy by omitting overt references to the deep Christian faith at the heart of her protagonist’s life.
