In addition to being nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary in 2012, Hell and Back Again also won the Cinematography AND Grand Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance film festival. After experiencing it - and that is what you do, you don't "watch" it you experience it - I can attest this film is a work of art.
It is the astounding story of a soldier's time in and return home from the war in Afghanistan. It is a must see.
There is no doubt, this documentary made me even more thankful for our service men and women. It made me even more amazed by the bravery and sacrifice they and their families exhibit. It made me grateful for the opportunity to learn more about the war and a handful of its participants.
