They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)

In the fascinating documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old, from Peter Jackson dives deep into World War I.  This is a topic that as an American I am not that on top of since the United States wasn’t really as involved in this one so it’s typically glossed over in history classes so as to get to the second one. This was a wonderful film that colorized a film of soldiers and looks at the brutal nature of the war. It also has narration from WWI Vets recalling the events. This seems like the odds on favourite to win an Oscar for Best Documentary at the 92nd Oscars, if it’s eligible.

As today is the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landing it felt that mentioning these heroes fighting men from the World War who gave of themselves so that we all could live. If you haven’t had a chance to see this film I know it had a brief run, it is worth the time to go watch it.
