Earlier this week, Mr. Handsome and I made a big bowl of our signature “microwave” popcorn and watched the movie Union Bound. Based on the incredible true story of Joseph Hoover, a Union soldier who escaped from a Confederate prisoner of war camp with the help of slaves, Union Bound opened in theaters across the United States on April 22nd.
We give this film two thumbs up for its vivid, suspenseful, and historically rich storyline. Rated PG-13, Union Bound features battle scenes and four mild profanities and is not suitable for children. I would encourage parents of young teenagers to watch the movie alongside their kids.
