‘Sound of Freedom’ Deserves to Be a Best Picture Contender

A prominent Hollywood awards columnist is pressing The Sound of Freedom to Oscar controversy, as the anti-child-trafficking drama has emerged as the summer’s box office success.

Columnist Sasha Stone made the case in a recent post on her Awards Daily site.

“Does that mean the industry will give this film a chance? It’s not. It does not. In fact, they are doing the opposite. They are trying to discredit him and destroy him as a matter of course,” she wrote.

“They should all hang their heads in shame.”

Stone suggested The Sound of Freedomwriting that he deserves to be nominated for best picture and that star Jim Caviezel deserves best actor consideration for his performance as Tim Ballard – the real-life Homeland Security agent who quit his job with the government to devote himself to rescuing children from international trafficking rings and bringing their kidnappers to justice.

The Sound of Freedom, in fact, would not work without Caviezel whose stillness is as strong as the more emotional scenes. It’s in the eyes. You can’t look away,” she wrote.

Stone sharply criticized the mainstream news media, which has moved in lockstep to smear The Sound of Freedom by associating it with “QAnon” — a horrible leftist thing for conservatives who believe that global elites are running pedophile rings, like Jeffrey Epstein’s ring.

“The press is actively attacking not only the film but Ballard himself, as this is some kind of political war – what? Did people like a movie that didn’t make Hollywood? Shouldn’t that tell you something?” she wrote.

“They have to try to discredit a hero who saved children from sexual slavery and destroy him because of Trump’s WAAA?”

As Breitbart News reported, former President Donald Trump hosted a special screening of The Sound of Freedom last week at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Trump later called for the death penalty for human traffickers, saying he will “protect the dignity of human life” when he returns to the White House.
