8th grader Timothy Reyes reportedly had a lot to tell his parents after having his hands forcibly taped together as part of a “slave ship” reenactment during one of his classes.

“Unbroken” earned $47.3 million at the box office over Christmas weekend, making it the number three release for that period. It’s the story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic athlete who suffered terrible torture at the hands of his Japanese captors during World War II. The film ends with a caption announcing that he decided to honor a promise to serve God. Over half the movie depicts the torture, but director Angelina Jolie left no time to establish the context for Zamperini’s conversion. Universal Pictures has remedied that with a short video.
