Will Graham, grandson of the late Billy Graham who stars in the new film “Unbroken: Path to Redemption,” said the story of World War II prisoner of war Louis Zamperini made him emotional because it shows the tensions in marriage that he’s experienced and even witnessed in his grandparents’ relationship.
“Unbroken: Path to Redemption” based on Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book, Unbroken, covers the second half of Olympic gold medalist Louis Zamperini’s life when he returns home after being held captive at a prisoner of war camp in Japan. The true story picks up where Angelina Jolie’s 2014 epic “Unbroken” movie ended and shows his battle with PTSD and the toll it takes on his family.
“I’m also a husband, I have a wife I have children and I see some of the tension that goes on,” Graham told The Christian Post at the movie premiere last Thursday. “Every married couple has tension and problems in their marriage from time to time, doesn’t mean that they are all bad. My grandparents had it, the Zamperini’s had it, but you can get through. You work through it together and it makes you stronger at the other end.
“When I see some of this marital conflict, there are some things that I’m like, ‘Man, I know what that’s [like]’ and I can see it in her [his wife, Kendra’s] eyes, and it’s just emotional because this is a true story,” he continued. “This isn’t a Hollywood made up story but it’s real life; there are real people being affected. But yet, there’s a real God that can change everything and that’s what I love.”
