Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Truth Be Told
The Postables are on a mission to deliver a soldier’s letter from Afghanistan to a teenager who’s being relentlessly bullied, while Oliver’s estranged father surprises him with news that shakes him to his core.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Truth Be Told ushers us into the investigative side of the post office, brought to life by four unique characters. Good-natured and efficient, Shane is the epitome of a successful female department head who still has feelings for Oliver, a postal-proud perfectionist, skillfully created by actor Eric Mabius. Shane and Oliver, flanked by perky, quirky Rita and her sweet and geeky love interest, Norman, embark on a humanitarian journey. They must unite a 2-year-old damaged letter, sent from war-torn Afghanistan, with its intended recipient, Phoebe, the daughter of a missing female soldier. This becomes a labor of love for the team, as they forge on to find the letter’s author, the comrade of Phoebe’s mother.As the mystery of the letter unfolds, circumstances begin to pry the unfinished relationship between Shane and Oliver. He relates to young Phoebe’s loss and is forced to relive feelings of abandonment. When his well-meaning father shows up, Oliver embarks on a tour of painful memories, which gives Shane the opportunity to help. This visually pleasing, well-produced movie extends a message of endurance as Phoebe never gives up hope, while also offering a message of forgiveness as Oliver confronts the ruins of his parents. Staying on the lighter side, this movie can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages, though small children might not be as engaged.
