Big Miracle

In the first or second class we talked about films that are "based on true stories". A lot of these movies shift so far away from the actual event that it is trying to depict. I watched "Big Miracle" over the weekend. I thought it was a really good movie and I could tell that it was based on a true story because there is a ton of old news footage shown in it. They use news clips with some of the most celebrated journalists of the 80s. Of course, they added things and took things away from the story, but I liked it. Below is a clip and a link to an LA Times story that was published about the story around the time the movie was coming out.

  1. I haven't seen this one yet, but thanks for sharing the trailer with us. As to the "true story" aspect; even many documentaries are not "true" in the strict sense of the word.
