Messenger, The

Rating = B+

This is a story of two soldiers who have the job of notifying the next of kin that their family member has been killed in Iraq. The lead soldier in this team preaches not making emotional or physical contact with the NOK. The other soldier has a different instinct. The acting of the three main characters, the three soldiers, and one woman they notify, is excellent.
