King's Faith DVD Review and Giveaway!

Picture Credit
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.

My Review

This movie blew me away! To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I figured it would be a touching story but iffy acting and overly dramatic. Don't get me wrong, I love faith based films, some are better than others. Many times it seems the faith aspect to too fake or overly done. Many of the movies I have seen are great, but for unbelievers, they don't really appreciate them because all they see is a dramatic "Bible thumping" movie. This movie surprised me in every way. The acting is top notch, the story line is incredible, and the message behind it all is great. Many times my husband starts watching these movies, gets bored and does something else. With King's Faith he sat down and watched the entire thing. This is exactly the story that needed to be made into a movie, it doesn't sugarcoat life, or the life of a Christian. Just because you are a Christian doesn't mean hard-aches and difficulties disappear.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone at least 13 and older. It's rated PG-13 for good reason, drugs, guns, and gang life are discussed and shown throughout the film. Watch with caution but it is excellent!!
