| A Very Powerful Film
For those who are looking for flaws in this movie, they are going to find them. However, considering the budget the film makers had to work with, I think they exceeded expectations. What carries this film is the story and the storytelling. Of course, it's a bonus to have Cromwell and son in two critical roles in the film, but even their combined skills can't make a bad story good. Fortunately, with this film, they have a very good story which they turn into something special. As for the rest of the cast, some of the performances are sub-par, but I would not use a broad-brush with that criticism.

As has been said, this is not a "war movie". It's also not a film about remembering our WWII veterans, though that will hopefully be one effect of it. This film is trying to help us understand our war veterans. Why did grandpa not want to talk about WWII? Why doesn't dad want to talk about what happened in Iraq or Afghanistan? The answer isn't as obvious or as simple as we may think.

I've watched Memorial Day at least 3 times and each time I've come away with something new to think about.
