The Petoskey Film Theater will be showing the critically acclaimed documentary "The Tillman Story" on Wednesday and Friday, February 16 and 18, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building (old library). Donations are appreciated.
Pat Tillman gave up his multimillion-dollar NFL career to join the military and fight in Afghanistan, only to be killed in unclear circumstances. His death was seized upon by the Bush administration as a testimony to patriotism -- so it was a jolt to Tillman's family when the official story was discredited and a harsher truth revealed. Most families, stunned by grief, would have let this go. The Tillman family didn't. "The Tillman Story" follows this dogged, determined, outspoken family as they fight to uncover what really happened and who was responsible for their son being twisted from a thoughtful young man to a one-dimensional political icon. The portrait of incompetence, error, and deceit that emerges will shock and disturb. Skillfully woven together from interviews and media footage, "The Tillman Story" draws suspense, anguish and even bursts of dark but bracing humor from this tragedy.
Pat Tillman, who never wanted his motivation for enlisting to be made public, comes through as unexpectedly complex, kind and insightful, brash and forthright, and deeply deserving of the devotion so clearly demonstrated by his family and friends. This documentary is riveting throughout, but the most crucial moment comes before a congressional hearing that exonerated Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and other top brass (all of whom claimed ignorance of an incriminating memo), when Mary Tillman -- Pat's mother -- makes a brave and heartbreaking statement. "The Tillman Story" is worth watching for this moment alone.
