This stirring documentary tells the story of the “final mission” of the crew of the Memphis Belle, a U.S. Army bomber which completed 25 missions over Europe during World War II. Fun fact: Despite what it claims, the film actually focuses on the next-to-last mission of the Belle. Guess that wasn’t dramatic enough.
