We so frequently wander off the path and forget that there is hope and that we have the power to make a difference even if we don't feel like it. This movie really helped me realize that there is hope and it touched me on such a deep level.

We actually saw this moving TWICE over the weekend ... on Saturday afternoon, and then we went with friends to see it again on Sunday. I honestly have been at a lost for words to describe it. As a matter of fact, when trying to explain it to my friends on Sunday, I finally said, "Let's just go see it!" Which is exactly what we did ... and they were left with the exact same feeling that we had on Saturday. This movie will definitely help you to see that there no place life will ever take you where the love and grace of God will not sustain you. The song from the movie "Hope Saved My Life" says it all ... and "it's not a dead end, if it takes you where you needed to go." I don't rate many movies; as a matter of fact, this is the first ... but I felt inclined to do so, because many people are wondering what this movie is about ... but I can promise you that it will bless your life. My teenaged daughter was still talking about it this morning. :-)

It has been a REALLY long time since I've seen a move that's touch my spirit like this one. It gives you a since of hope and love like most movies don't dare to address in these days.
It made me laugh and cry. I highly recommend this film. It's a perfect movie to take the entire family to see. I think teenagers should especially see this so that they can get a better understanding of how their actions may bring about change in their communities.

Never saw Michael Ealy in a movie like this. Great to see him in a different role. Great cast! Amazing Movie.

Go see it. Words are not sufficient to describe this movie. The acting is very good and the storyline is relevant, real and inspirational. You will laugh, you will cry (or at least puddle up), and you will walk out of the movie all the better for it. It will be in our collection once released on video.
