The Last Ring Home
is a half-hour WWII documentary film and book, both being launched November 2016. It's a true story of love, courage and honor. Beyond the truly magical journey of the hero's ring, The Last Ring Home also touches on an important topic, uncovering the impact on the children of the men and women who fought in WWII. Here is the trailer
of the film that has been selected at three festivals (Ojai, Charleston International and South Carolina International) and will be aired on TV on PBS (WHYY and MPT) in the US and on the History Channel in ANZ on prime time on November 11.
Some early reviews of The Last Ring Home:
"I was deeply moved, and think it’s incredibly poignant – a painful and beautiful memory of war.” -Harvey Weinstein
"It is a remarkable and well-told story..,,and gripping emotionally.” -Bill Marrazzo, President and CEO of WHYY
“It is very effective… Very moving…” -Tom Luddy, co-Director of Telluride Film Festival
