A powerful military drama that hits too close to home. "the Messenger" is the story of a military job no one wants. Informing their loved one that their daughter/son won't be coming home alive. Will, who did his duty overseas, now must adjust to his new job as Casuality Notification Team. He rides around with Woody harrison who knows more about the job than him. Thir only duty is to inform them about their dead solider with hugging them or shake their hand. Then they leave while the family is crying over the news. One rule is that not to get involve, but Will got emotional attach to a widow named Olivia played by Samantha Morton. The film is very powerful with emotional putch by the entire cast. "the Messager" is the flip side of "the Hurt Locker."
