What Can We Do?
My husband and I were able to attend a special pre-screening of this
film over the summer. The strong pro-marriage message was excellent, as
was the clear presentation of the gospel. This film represents a huge
step forward for Christian filmmakers. It was made by the same church
that produced "Facing the Giants" and uses very little "professional"
acting talent, yet the acting is well done, and there are many
Kirk Cameron is fantastic as the husband struggling
to love his wife and avoid divorce, urged on by his parents, who also
nearly lost their own marriage years before. Supporting actors pull their own weight, and superb editing keeps the film moving along and audiences glued to the screen. The message of this film is so important that we'd urge churches to book theaters and take hundreds of people to see it.
While this film wasn't created for children (it contains subject matter that is geared toward adults), it is appropriate for older children (I'd say 15 and up). There is no language and no inappropriate content to worry about. The laughs are clean (and
funny!). The producer who came to our local screening also revealed a neat inside story: when the husband and wife embrace and kiss near the end of the film, it is Kirk Cameron's real-life wife who stands in at that point. When this movie claims to promote and protect the marriage covenant, the producers really mean it, even for the actors involved! We're delighted to be able to promote a film that has worked so hard to declare the beauty and purity of marriage before a watching world.
