The “My Brother’s Keeper movie started out a bit different. I wondered why the guy was struggling with his faith, but as the movie went on, the light was shed on that. Going through horrible circumstances, and trying to stay strong. Having questions about certain things, that people just told him to write off and be quiet about. It made me understand why he was having problems. Seeing the trials of war, and combat…I cannot fathom what these people go through. The struggle with PTSD, when they return is all so real. I’m hoping that it is starting to not look as bad in today’s world, to actually ask for help. For so long, people were ashamed to find assistance for this. There is nothing wrong with anyone who just needs to find new ways of getting through mental and physical struggles. In my opinion, I think that the bravery in just asking for the help goes above and beyond. After the help is received, to be able to talk to others, who are also struggling, and let them hear from someone who has been there, I think speaks volumes. Helping those to get and education about a certain instance, means a lot more from someone who has actually gone through it themselves.
I would definitely recommend the “My Brother’s Keeper” movie. It is not one for the younger audience, in my opinion. With the struggles with suicide attempts, and war scenes, I think it might be above what they can handle. Older teens, adults and many others will learn a lot from this movie. If you are going to watch it with some that have been affected by war, you might want to let them know some of what happens, just in case. It might be helpful, but I’d rather not some have to relive certain things while enjoying a movie night. The end part brought tears to my eyes, and I give thanks to all of those that have served for our freedom, and our right to follow our faith and be a voice to others.

Beginning January 22, 2021, this powerful story of faith and redemption in the wake of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) will hit theaters across the US. Home entertainment will follow in the spring of 2021, through UPHE Content Group.
The filmmakers at Manns Mackie Studios have launched the film website (mbkfilm.com) and released a new trailer to launch the project.

My Brother’s Keeper shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight—PTSD. Fox and his best friend SFC Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th combat deployment when Preach and his entire Ranger platoon are killed in a deadly improvised explosive device attack. Travis returns to his hometown to settle the affairs of his parents who had passed away years before. In searching for answers about his parents, he also discovers a new obstacle in PTSD. He finds support from church counselor, Tiffany Robertson (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God until he discovers a secret. Travis uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Robert Ri’chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable.
