The Messenger (2009): Brief Review

The Messenger directed by Oren Moverman (2009), is a film about a solider back from war is assigned with letting families know that their loved one has died while in service. It’s an interesting view of the ongoing wars and the price of the causalities of war. All the while it’s showing the depths of both of the main characters as well as how the assignment and how their partnership is changing both of them throughout the film. It’s a somewhat unique perspective and I appreciate the story for what it is. I would recommend a watch but if you don’t, you’re not missing a ton.

Watched on Hulu.
