In a recent media session, the 25-year-old player detailed some off-day activities, including a movie marathon. He emphatically praised the movie, saying, “‘Sound of Freedom’ is good. Yeah, `Sound of Freedom is really good.’”
Encouraging the journalists to experience the film, Tagovailoa suggested, “You guys should watch that. Especially you guys with kids.”
“Sound of Freedom,” a film centered around child trafficking, has not only resonated with Tagovailoa but also captivated audiences globally. The movie has become a box office sensation, grossing more than $173 million since its U.S. release in early July.
The film delves into the child trafficking crisis, narrating the compelling journey of Tim Ballard, a former U.S. government agent who courageously abandoned his career to rescue children from the clutches of sex traffickers. With Jim Caviezel portraying Ballard and Mira Sorvino adding to the stellar cast, “Sound of Freedom” delivers a potent message about this pressing global issue.
Baltimore Ravens star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took to social media to share his sentiments on the film, remarking, “Sound of Freedom. I don’t even know what to say. That’s heavy.”
However, the film hasn’t escaped criticism. In response, “Sound of Freedom” director Alejandro Monteverde and cowriter Rod Barr wrote an opinion piece for “The Hollywood Reporter” staunchly defending the film’s apolitical stance.
As the Miami Dolphins place their trust in Tagovailoa for the coming seasons, his passion for raising awareness about important issues and sharing his faith in Christ extends beyond the gridiron. Despite grappling with multiple head injuries in 2022, the former University of Alabama quarterback showcased remarkable resilience, achieving career highs in various aspects of the game, including passing yards, touchdowns and completion percentage. Notably, he also clinched the NFL’s top passer rating for the previous season.
