I heard about this movie from the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, a new group of film makers dedicated to making and producing Christian films. I am very excited about this because it means I won’t have to look to hollywood as my only source of movies. In recent years I have found it increasingly difficult to watch movies and enjoy them, as they are often full of profanity and a level of worldliness that I find hard to call entertainment.
The story revolves around a fire chief, played by Kirk Cameron, and his wife who is the public relations officer at a local hospital. Although both have gained worldly success, they have failed at marriage as they have both lived their separate lives consumed by their own selfish desires. It represents many married couples that have not embraced God’s direction for their lives and is a good reminder even for those of us who are actively trying to follow God’s will for our lives however imperfect our attempts are.
I loved this film, it had suspense and romance and most of all it had God, I am so happy that there are people out there that are willing to forgo the trimming (and trappings) of hollywood and make good films, that we can share as a family. I hope you will all get to see this one.
