The producers of the upcoming film, Walking with the Enemy, will donated ten cents toward the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) for every Facebook “like” the movie receives before its opening on Friday, April 25. The WWP offers programs and services toward wounded veterans of the military to help “foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” Liberty Studios will donate up to $30,000 for this promotion.

The Wounded Warrior Project believes that each person’s recovery process is different and that the “greatest casualty is being forgotten.” They help veterans get settled into their “new normal” with programs designed to aid their minds, bodies, economic empowerment and engagement with a special alumni program.

To help with this promotion, simply go to Walking with the Enemy Facebook page and “like” them.

Sneaking under many people’s radar, Liberty Studios’ Walking with the Enemy was the winner for Best Picture at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and was granted the title of “Official Selection” for both the Heartland and Hamptons International Film Festivals of 2013. The film is inspired by a true story about the horrors of World War II during Germany’s invasion of Hungary. Though Jonas Armstrong plays the role of Elek Cohen, the movie is inspired by the true story of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum.

In the movie, Cohen  is separated from his family and forced to live underground. In order to find his find his family he must become one with the enemy by disguising himself as a Nazi SS Officer. He is joined by Hannah (Hannah Tointon) and together they take incredible risks to save their families and many others.

The story tells how the couple works with the Swiss vice-consul, Carl Lutz (William Hope) who take crazy risks in hopes of saving thousands of people on their way to Nazi death camps. The film also stars Ben Kingsley as Regent Horthy, the leader of Hungary, who has his own struggles in saving his own son.
