Freetown DVD Giveaway



You know I'm not much of a movie watcher. So when I do spend time watching a movie I really want it to be a good one. I was lucky enough to score a DVD copy of Freetown and Rand and I watched it with my parents a few weeks ago. (Gosh, its always extra nervous to watch a movie with your parents, no matter how old you are.)

"Caught in the middle of a brutal civil war, six Liberian missionaries in Monrovia flee the widespread violence in their native country. Their destination: Freetown, Sierra Leone. With the help of local church member Phillip Abubakar (Henry Adofo), the missionaries make the difficult journey, only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own. Based on incredible true events, FREETOWN is a thrilling and inspiring story of faith, hope and survival."



I enjoyed the movie's portrayal of this powerful story. It was a little slower than I expected but thankfully didn't have too much violence even though it was a very violent time in Liberia's history. I thought the movie handled the subject tastefully and yet still conveyed the terror and suffering of so many people. I appreciated the occasional humor. This movie is primarily about the faith of the LDS missionaries. I will have my older kids sit down and watch this with me but I feel like the themes and images are too much for my younger kids right now.


Freetown is another uplifting story about faithful LDS missionaries to add to the collection of others. 


I have two DVDs of Freetown to give away.

To enter leave a comment on this post. The contest will be open to entries until Friday, August 21st at 11:59pm MST. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Saturday, August 22nd.

**I received a complimentary copy of Freetown. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.**
