King's Faith DVD Review & Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was provided with this movie to facilitate my review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  Thanks so much to FlyBy and the sponsor for providing this information and giveaway.

I have a new DVD movie to tell you about, King's Faith (released October 22, 2013).  This movie has some tough topics - prison, gangs, drugs, felonies, bitterness, grief and choice, forgiveness, redemption, faith, letting go and so much more.  I was so impressed by the foster parents in this movie, especially the gentleman.  Despite great loss, he was really living and walking a pure faith.  I appreciated the "realness" of his wife, who had a more difficult time accepting events of the past (in her own life and that of Brendan's life) and whose faith was ultimately challenged during the film similarly to Brendan's.  Unlike Brendan, you didn't see her have a defining moment though - one that she fought through her struggles.  It became obvious that she made a choice to surrender to the Lord and press on but I missed seeing that moment on screen.  I thought this movie was done well and well worth watching.  I liked the development and growth of many of the characters on screen.  I see this as an extremely teachable movie, especially with teens.

This film is rated PG-13 for violence, drug content and thematic events.  A friend of mine described it as a cross between the movies, "Fireproof" and "To Save a Life" and I think that is pretty accurate.  Please be aware of this especially when watching with children (my kids are too young).  Read more about this movie below and be sure and enter the giveaway to win your own copy!

Eighteen foster homes. Nine arrests. One life-changing moment.  After Brendan King’s life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief.  As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, he finds support from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong. In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it.  KING’S FAITH is produced by DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters.
