The Cokeville Miracle Giveaway
The Cokeville Miracle just came out on DVD and I have to say, I was thrilled to get my copy. I loved this movie. It is so relevant to today, powerful and emotional. It definitely had some great talking points as we watched it together as a family. (And it is rated PG-13 for very good reasons. I think it might be frightening for younger children because of the bombing scenes.)
The Cokeville Miracle tells the story of how a man with a bomb took the elementary schoolchildren hostage and demanded a $2 million ransom per child. I loved how the film focused us on one family and their reaction to the horrifying event. The best thing, though, was that it wasn't about carnage or violence. The film was uplifting and carried an inspiring message. It touched me and really made me think about what I believe when it comes to modern-day miracles.
This film is tense, it is emotional, but the miracle of that event is confirmed by so many witnesses. The message is incredible and yet not preachy. It is so well done from the acting to the way the story was told.
And since I loved this show so much, I am offering you a chance to win a DVD copy of it for yourself. All you have to do is tell me in the comments the name of a movie you've seen that touched your emotions and made you want to tell all your friends to go see it.
And if you haven't seen the theatrical trailer for The Cokeville Miracle, you can see that and my official review here.
Go see it. Buy the DVD here for $14.99. Or enter my giveaway to win a copy. But this is definitely a must-see movie.
