"Hero" Review and GIVEAWAY! (9/28)

*Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of the following film in exchange for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any other way.

About Hero (from the press release):
From producers of Alone Yet Not Alone, comes a heartfelt movie about legendary small town baseball coach, Joe Finn (Burgess Jenkins, Remember the Titans, Nashville, The Shunning), who after taking his shot as a scout for the big leagues returns home to discover the damage he's done by leaving his family behind. Now on a quest to rebuild his relationship with his son David, Joe forms a new baseball league to reinvigorate the underdog little league team his son had been coaching. Together, as father and son, they try to put away their differences and help bring their ragtag team of ball players, “The Gappers”, to victory.

Check out the trailer!

My Review:
This is such a wonderful movie to show the importance of fathers in their son's lives.  Even strained relationships between fathers and sons can heal and become something wonderful later in life.  It's not something that I can completely understand, being a girl and all, but I can definitely see how our son is a completely different little man when he's with his Dad...there is something special there...

I also liked how, in the movie, they stressed for the boys to work hard and be the best baseball players that they could be....how it's important to have fun, but it's really fun to win and know the work you put into it to get there.  It's definitely something to be proud of! :-)

Hero is a great movie and I highly recommend it....for dads especially! :-)

This movie looks very good and I think I would love to send it to my great nephew in Florida who doesn't live with his dad but does see him. Maybe they could watch it together. dpucci9972@gmail.com
