Opens today. Looks like an inspirational movie, and I hope it comes to Boston:

News story:
http://www.wbur.org/...ets-seek-high-ground

What emerges as the film goes on is that the things military service provided for many of these individuals family, friends, camaraderie, a support network of other like-minded individuals willing to lay down their lives for them is the exact thing that has been taken away by their injuries, leaving them feeling particularly isolated. The climb provides them with that sense of community once again.

This group is its own band of brothers and sisters, a unit focused on getting to the top of Lobuche, relying on one another in much the same way they might in battle. As in war, not all of them are assured of success. But some of them reaching the summit is a victory for all of them, and High Ground's inspiration is in seeing that sense of belonging on the faces of the climbers.

Thanks for the MFA info. I was trying to purchase tickets to the AMC showing through the Tugg website, but it would not go through. Hope to see it!
