Isn’t it interesting to think about how historical events are turned into stories?  A baby named Louis Zamperini is born in 1917… fast forward to 2014 and The Most Beautiful Woman in the World is making a movie based on a bestselling book written about his life.

 

Here we have the trailer for Unbroken, which just gave me chills to watch.  Sure, it looks like the kind of Oscar-bait that always comes out in December, but this story (like Boys in the Boat) is one of those rare bits of history that doesn’t take much narrative grooming in order to become legend.  We always have copies of Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken– stop by and pick one up before you see the movie!
