There is nothing extraordinary about this movie, yet, it’s a powerful and wonderful movie to watch as a family. It’s a movie about priorities, forgiveness, family, and more. Dean Cain stars in this movie, you may remember him from his role on television in the program Louis and Clark.
As you watch the movie it becomes pretty clear we are dealing with a family who has a multitude of problems. There is tension between the husband and wife, there is blaming, guilt, bitterness. As the family gets ready to leave on a vacation, the husband, Dean Cain, becomes distracted and their young son runs off into the woods and disappears.
They become panic stricken as they wonder if someone took their son, did he drown in a nearby pond, will he be found. Many questions surround this couple, but the local small town starts moving which is a great representation of how the local church should act.
While the focus is on this family, we see how the lives of others are also greatly impacted and lives become changed, transformed because they were willing to step into the messiness of life.
We watched this movie as a family and found it was not cheesy, but portrayed Christianity in a very healthy and positive manner. I would recommend this movie for a family who wants to watch a good movie with a message. This would also be good for a family for Christmas (even though it is still months away).
This book was given to me for review by Book Sneeze, but the review and opinions are my own.
