"Based on a previously untold story, All for Liberty depicts the true events of Captain Henry Felder, a backcountry hero of the American Revolution. A Swiss-German immigrant farmer in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Felder is convinced to respond to British tyranny by writing an Articles of Separation from the English king and raising his own militia, including a female tavern owner who gathers a patriot spy ring.
In the ensuing struggle against the British Empire and community loyalists, including his old comrade, Bill Jenkins, Felder and his family find the cost of freedom. A multi-award winning independent feature film, All for Liberty stars film and TV actor Clarence Felder, the sixth-generation great-grandson of Captain Henry Felder."
If you like films that deal with US History, then you will enjoy this film about slavery and the fight for liberty for all. Viewers will learn were the saying, "All for Liberty" came home, and how Captain Henry Felder, a hero of the American Revolution, worked hard to abolish slavery. He even helped a black man during that time, which was unheard of. He was even asked to pen the "Articles of Separation"by the English king.
Based on true events, this film contains some violent war scenes, but really does an excellent job in telling the story of the American Revolution and those like Henry Felder and his wife, who not only fought the Indians, but had a strong declaration for freedom, and fought for "Liberty for all." This movie would be great to use with homeschooling, in schools, or shared with children ages 12 yrs. and older, to teach them about US History and the fight for freedom and equality for all.

"All that separates the students of Eastbrook High from the freedom of Christmas break is one day of final exams. The light snowfall that Friday, however, soon escalates into a threatening storm that cancels school and leaves six students stranded in the dark gym. Despite personal conflicts, the teens revel in having the school to themselves, staging an impromptu talent show and a culinary class feast. Then, a knock on the door from outside the school brings an entirely new element to the night.
Forced to rely on each other, the teens create friendships, test wills, and reveal secrets as they strive to survive the night alone. Written and directed by Brittany Goodwin, Secrets in the Snow deals with issues facing contemporary teenagers and families, including body image, identity crisis, bankruptcy, military leave, and finding answers to life's struggles through Christianity."
I watched this movie the other evening while wrapping gifts, and it reminded me of the 80's film, "The Breakfast Club." But, this film was more appropriate for tweens/teens and didn't have sexual connotations, foul language, violence, drugs, etc. in it. I liked this film, as it is a great movie to share with your children to let them know that everyone is different and that it is normal to deal with peer pressure in school. I loved how they showed this group of kids who would otherwise not associate with each other come together due to a snowstorm, and have a chance to learn about each other.
I don't know what tween/teen would not relate to this film, and enjoy watching it. It would also make for a great family movie night flick, with a follow up discussion afterwards about the themes shared in the film, like confiding in others, appreciating each others differences, and overcoming peer pressure. I will definitely be recommending this title to family and friends with tweens/teens.
