Fantastic movie about the tragic bipolar life of an alcoholic and the complete powerlessness of the disease. Finally, a movie that DE-stigmatizes 12 step programs such as CR! I wouldn't take the kids though. The movie gives an honest glimpse of the tragic hurts and addictions and the power of recovery.

I am a recovering Meth Addict and I will say Scot Elrod(Cory Brand) did an excellent job portraying an addict. I felt the sense of struggle through his acting and the very same struggle I went through. When Cory tells The CR Minister he just can not stop- That was me! This is an excellent movie and Freedom is Possible. Nothing great happens when we hold back! We took men and women from the homeless shelter as well some of which are addicts and everyone was moved and touched by this movie- one lady came up to me and said I wan to start coming every Sunday to church! Several of the guys told me that they want to start coming to CR every week. This movie was not just a movie- this particular movie was a tool that touched lives, including mine. The Theater was packed out and the manager came to me and said "We have not been this busy since the Passion of Christ" Every one of us struggle with our hurts, habits and hangups- this movie is for everyone!

Home Run is a beautiful movie about the healing power of our Higher Power Jesus Christ. You take a journey through the struggles of each character and the redemtive power of our Savior. What a wonderful movie filled with hope and healing.

Home Run was an amazing story of grace and forgiveness. This is the kind of story our country needs to know. No matter how far gone you may think you are, there is hope for positive change. It can and does happen all the time! Instead of judging poeple unfairly for the mistakes they've made, rememeber we have all been hurt. We've all gone through trials. But we all have a hope and a future thanks to God's amazing love.

This is a great movie about healing from past hurts and redemption. Good acting and cinematography. A few lulls here and there but they aren't long. Also an excellent movie for church groups to go see. I would not take children below the age of 12, due to the fact of the story being about a recovering alcoholic. It's just a little too deep for a younger child to understand everything that is going on. There is no cussing or sex which is very refreshing!
