Only the Brave

ONLY THE BRAVE –  All men are created equal… then, a few become firefighters. Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it–they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

Q-tips say: Loved this movie. Only the Brave tells the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots who risked their lives to stop wildfires across the country.  A group of people who you grow fond of during the course of a film band together in the most dangerous of circumstances for a common cause. All of them do a great job of creating a chemistry and realness between each other. In order to feel anything when these men are entering the flames, there has to be real friendships and relationships built between the actors as these real life heroes. Perhaps more than anything else, the movie completely nailed the bond between the team of hotshots. Going along with the bonds they have with each other, the film focuses heavily on a few of the men’s personal lives.
