Saints and Soldiers is a dramatic, intense and heroic WWII film about members of the Greatest Generation struggling to be both good men and good soldiers.
In-mid December 1944, while Hitler's Army blitzkriegs through the Ardennes Forest in Belgium. American sharpshooter Corporal Nathan Greer, known as Deacon, finds himself held captive with over one hundred other American Soldiers in a snow covered-field.
As panic and confusion ensue the German soldiers open fire on the American Prisoners, in the historical event now known as the Malmedy Massacre. Greer, his friend Gordon Gunderson and a handful of others escape the massacre by hiding in the nearby woods.
The small band of soldiers come across a stranded British intelligence officer with valuable information to be delivered to the Allied forces, further upping the stakes of their already dangerous situation.
With few weapons, no food and strained camaraderie, this tiny band must take on the unforgiving winter to fight their way back to Allied occupied territory.
In addition to winning 14 Best Picture Awards at film festivals nationwide, critics and audiences have showered Saints and Soldiers with praise, making it one of the most acclaimed films of 2004.

I loved this movie! I watched it to see Kirby Heyborne and at the end of the movie I was like, 'was he even in it?' He did a great job acting in a completely different character!

I'm not one for war movies but this is a show that transcends genre and explores the core of the gospel and humanity. Easily one of the best LDS movies I have seen so far. Spiritual without being smarmy or preachy. For fans of high quality drama this movie is a must see.

This is a powerful film about living/upholding your values in a way that is not preachy. The music is incredible and perfect. , A must see for an LDS type movie.
