“You all are one of the best damn crews I’ve ever seen. Seal team 6 are fire fighters.” All men are created equal… then, a few become firefighters. ‘Only the Brave,’ based on the real life story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. “I worked this blaze near Montana and the blink of an eye this fire was everywhere. And then charging out of these flames come this bear on fire. It was the most beautiful and terrible feeling ever seen.”
“If this ain’t the greatest job in the world I don’t know what is.” As most of us run from danger, they run toward it – they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.
“When this thing sweeps over you it’s gonna feel like the end of the world.” It’s not about what’s standing in front of you, it’s about who’s standing beside you. ‘Only the Brave’ recounts the heroic story of a team of local firefighters who are part of the Prescott Fire Department in Arizona. In 2013, they fought the deadliest wildfire in history, in Yarnell, AZ that claimed the lives of 19 of their members.
“This is it, game time.” “It’s not easy sharing your man with a fire. No matter what happens, no matter what’s going on this granite mountain family pulls together.” Directed by Joseph Kosinski from a script by Ken Nolan and Eric Warren Singer, based on a magazine article “No Exit” by Sean Flynn, starring Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Taylor Kitsch and Jeff Bridges, the film is scheduled to be released in theaters October 20, 2017.
