The Messenger - Review (2009)

Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster have one of the worst jobs in the world - notifying families that their family member have been killed in warfare.  It is a devastating film at times, but luckily the story shifts and becomes more about the two men than the work they do. When the film shifts it isn't much lighter but rather than their work you are exposed to the deeper scars of war left on its warriors.  Like many films about war it only makes me prouder of those who fight for us (if we agree with the wars or not.) Not every many can leave his family to take on such a huge commitment.  8 out of 10
