This Is Our Time Movie Review & Giveaway


I have a new movie to tell you about, This Is Our Time by Pure Flix.  This movie follows the lives of five close friends upon completion of college.  They want to pursue what God has for them and make a difference in the world. 

Ok, look - this film isn't out to be the next entertainment blockbuster, but they did a good job exploring some real life issues here.  I didn't realize before watching it that this is a promotional movie for Embrace a Village, and honestly for me, knowing that changes my expectations.  While there were definite "cheese" moments I enjoyed this movie and the story itself.  It is a great example of how plans do not always turn out as expected yet God is in the midst of every trial and situation and it can be used to bring Him glory.

You will learn a ton about Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families in India.  I hope that this movie encourages people to embrace the calling that God has for them wherever they are.  Thank you Pure Flix for striving to make a difference, one person at a time!

This Is Our Time is available for purchase here.  Be sure to enter the giveaway below to win your own copy!

More About the film:
This Is Our Time, distributed by Pure Flix, follows the post-collegiate lives of five friends connected by their strong belief in God who all long to make a meaningful difference in the world. But when tragedy strikes the close-knit group, their friendship and their faith are tested in ways they never imagined.  This is an inspirational film about what it really means, and what it really takes, to follow the call of God in your life.   “The experiences the characters in THIS IS OUR TIME face are the kinds of real-life ups and downs, successes and devastation, all of us encounter in living life,” said Lisa Arnold, the film’s writer, director and co-producer. “I wanted to tell a story that would resonate with young people just stepping out into the world to make their mark that would help them see that no matter the circumstances they face, God is always with them, loving them, guiding them.”

The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.  “What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

This Is Our Time releases  on DVD and Blue-Ray on April 16, that is tomorrow!  It will be available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian on-line and brick-and-mortar stores nationwide.

This Is Our Time has received The Dove Foundation's Family Seal of Approval (earning the highest rating of five Doves) and is recommended for all ages.  It also features appearances by Hollywood veterans Eric Roberts, Erik Estrada and Dawn Wells.  Coinciding with the movie's DVD release, Pure Flix is teaming with Family Christian Stores and other Christian retailers to award eight $2,5000 college scholarships through registrations submitted through FamilyChristian.com and other  websites representing more than 2,000 retail outlets nationwide.  Participation eligibility and rules can be found at www.thisisourtimemovie.com.
