Flawed film, but a decent way of giving some good thought to the problem of abortion
December 30, 2018
I would like to make clear that I am Christian, and pro-life, so I very much appreciated the sensitive way this film portrayed some of the characters and situations. On the other hand, I am always so disappointed that Christian movies can't seem to get real life right. The sweetness of the love that God has for us, and mothers have for their children is just right in this film, the anger at dealing with bad choices and difficult situations is right, but the stereotyped characters without development is just wrong, so typical of religious themed movies. Overall, good message, gave me tears, feel good movie, with some serious flaws that can't be overlooked, sadly. I watched this with my teens to talk about the issues presented, sex before marriage, pregnancy, abortion, racist/therapist/cat lady stereotypes, and images of God. It was a good film for presenting talking points with teens, but not one that I am proud of, as a Christian.
