CMC was on the red carpet when “Faith of Our Fathers” made a final stop in West Monroe, LA on July 5th as part of their tour honoring veterans. This film, starring David A.R. White, Kevin Downes, Stephen Baldwin, and Candace Cameron Bure and featuring West Monroe’s own “Uncle Si” Robertson, is the story of 2 sons of Vietnam War vets who travel to the Vietnam War Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. It is more than a journey to learn more about their dads, but also to find peace and closure in their own lives. The film does have a powerful statement to make, but is not without its light-hearted moments. The camaraderie between Downes and White is second nature to them after 20+ years of working together on numerous films, plus Rebecca St James has a completely out of character role and the audience loved Uncle Si.
More interviews will be coming, but we did want to give you the highlights of the excitement of the evening with the film stars, producer Bobby Downes, singer/songwriter Amber Brooke Taylor (here singing “Some Gave All” with Uncle Si), movie attendees, and, of course, local veterans. The night was filled with fun and the perfect ending for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.
“Faith of Our Fathers,” written and directed by Carey Scott, is currently in theaters nationwide. For more information on the film, visit the website at FaithofOurFathers.com
