It’s a life span that must be told to the audience with the same strength and determination as the man whose true story it reveals. A strong narrative encompassing the confidence, resiliency and steadfastness found in this film’s main character and title. Only an unflinching and straightforward body of work could properly honor a young troublemaker’s dramatic rise to U.S. Olympian and, later, to American military hero. Based on the best-selling non-fiction novel by Laura Hillenbrand of the same name, “Unbroken” casts such an overwhelming shadow from a remarkable man’s life, almost any director would have found the story daunting to make for the big screen. Particularly one sitting in the director’s chair for only her second time ever--Angelina Jolie.

The general consensus about this year is that it seemed unusually long because of the onslaught on political advertisements and general unrest around the country and the world. Compounding the challenges of annual survival is the ritual we practice that laboriously rehashes the previous twelve months called the New Year’s Eve celebration.

Every year around this time, my wife and I make a $400 donation to public schools and I write a column about it. It may sound like I’m bragging about my generosity, but I’m not. See, I get the entire $400 back at income tax time. And you can do the same thing: give $200 as an individual or $400 as a couple to a public school – or spread it out over a few schools if you want – and get all your money back when you pay your state taxes. I highly recommend it. It’s a great deal, everybody wins. You get to do something good for school children, you get to feel good about yourself, and it doesn’t cost you a dime.
