My teenage daughter and I enjoyed this movie. At first she didn't want to watch it (being a typical teenager) but as the movie progressed she found some parts she could relate too and we found an instant favorite. The movie touch on a lot of things families are facing and gives you a warm feeling that I'm not alone on my daily walk. Watch with your family it's inspirational and encouraging.
Another inspiring movie from the Kendricks brothers. Well-written, casted, directed, and filmed. The opening scene is remarkable! The plot doesn't feel contrived, although "coincidences" abound. Many believers have such experiences with God in times of great need and through them learn there is no such thing as a coincidence, but it is God's personal interaction and intervention just when we need Him most. He even answers before we call and are aware of our need.
This movie has a very good message of forgiveness and reconciliation which come only when one turns over their life to God and develops a relationship with Him. Also has good message of what perserverance will do for you. I would recommend everyone at least rent this but it is good enough to buy for your collection.
The Kendrick Brothers have done it again. This movies will appeal to the 4th grader on up (I took my 91 year old mom, and she loved it).
Each character in the film must "overcome" the circumstances in their lives in different ways - but ultimately the source of their strength is the Lord.
The film is not preachy - but also does not hold back in the Truth of the Gospel and living it out in real ways.
This is definitely a must have and a great movie to show to friends on "movie night".
I was hesitant watching this movie but decided to rent it. Glad I did. Really good inspirational movie. Had some funny parts too. I had to buy it after renting it and wanting to see this movie again and again. I invited my family over to watch it and they all really enjoyed it too. Highly recommend this movie.
