The Messenger is a timeless story that uses humour and emotion to examine universal themes of redemption, hope and the resilience of the human spirit. Directed by Oren Moverman, the film follows two officers (Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson) faced with the unenviable task of notifying the loved ones of fallen soldiers. The two men form an unlikely bond that is threatened when one of the officers finds himself drawn to a young widow (Samantha Morton), setting off an ethical dilemma that plays out in touching and surprising ways. The film is a deeply moving tale about the complex and unexpected ways that people reach out to and gain strength from each other, offering a unique and inspiring vision that deftly balances strong emotional content with humour, compassion and empathy.
