Duke - DVD Review

DVD Synopsis:

Witness the heartfelt drama about one man’s life struggle in the Hallmark Movie Channel original Duke, on DVD March 12 from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment and Crown Media Family Networks. Steven Weber (“Wings,” “Leaving Las Vegas’), Sarah Smyth (“50/50”), and Allison Hossack (“Christmas Miracle”) star in an uplifting story about overcoming personal hardships and reconciling with the ones that mean most. Duke is the second highest-rated Hallmark Movie Channel original film to premiere on Hallmark Movie Channel.* Terry Pulaski (Weber) served his country well as a marine sergeant fighting in Iraq, but when he returns home to his family he is overwhelmed by the challenges of being a good father and husband. Devastated by his personal, mental, and physical struggles, Terry leaves his wife and daughter behind with only his trusted companion Duke by his side. After years without a home, illness overcomes Duke and Terry is forced to leave his best friend at the care of a veterinary clinic. On his own, Terry must conquer his struggles to save his best friend and reconcile with the love ones he left behind. An inspirational story about redemption, Duke arrives on DVD for the suggested retail price of $14.93.

My Review:

This movie was a heartwarming tearjerker that tells of a serviceman who comes back from Iraq wounded.  He is down in spirit but has the love of his dog, Duke, to help him through.  Terry depends on Duke to be his companion.  Later in the movie, Duke has to wait on Terry to overcome his own struggles and battles, and help come to his rescue.  The story is of a man and his dog, two friends who find they need each other to help heal.    I was emotionally charged with awe, compassion and tears throughout the entire movie.

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Hallmark Channel does have some of the most emotional and heartwarming movies on television!

This sounds like quite the tearjerker-I don't know if I'd make it through without bawling like a baby. LOL
