This is unbelievable on so many levels. Clint Eastwood has just produced a new movie that the American people, and all freedom loving people, can be proud of. This is huge!
15:17 to Paris is an upcoming American biographical thriller-drama film directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Dorothy Blyskal, based on the autobiography “The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Soldiers” by Jeffrey E. Stern, Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler, and Alek Skarlatos, about the 2015 Thalys train attack.
In today’s post-modern world we are deprived of the cultural creations to make us proud of our values, proud of our patriotism and proud of our heroes. Instead, we are told to understand the terrorists, to feel guilty when we stop and kill the terrorists, and to not be patriotic, because our Western countries are so bad in so many ways.
Clint Eastwood wants no part in that. He saw this story of three American soldiers who saved the lives of hundreds of French people by stopping a terror attack on a train on the way to Paris, and he wants them to get the attention they deserve as heroes.
Clint Eastwood does even more than that, because his film will star the three US soldiers, Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler, and Alek Skarlatos acting as themselves. Not only will their story get the attention it deserves, but Eastwood is allowing them to play it out on screen.
As one might think, traditional, post-modern Hollywood, is NOT happy with this new patriotic Clint Eastwood movie and they tried to stop its success by hampering its exposure. How did they try to do this? By giving the movie an R rating, even though it really deserves a PG-13 rating. This is a sure way to kill the movies impact, because Eastwood wants to impact the teenagers, the future of America, and an R rating stops that. However, Eastwood, fought back and appealed the rating, something that no Director has ever done. Thanks to his appeal, the movie is now rated PG-13, so American teenagers can also go out and see this movie. The movie will be released on February 9th.
America, and the freedom loving world, needs more movies like this. Thank you Clint Eastwood!
