Excellent Film of Inspiration, April 21, 2013
By Dr. Fred "Dr. Fred" (Salem, VA) -
"positively brilliant and I have had the privilege of reviewing faith based and family films for years. This is a film that should have been featured in theaters as there is a wide open expanse of beauty that harks back to the great old days of the John Ford epics. You are taken back and forth from city to country, intercutting between scenes in a style often over looked in films today. Certainly the director Chris Armstrong, who put this together, deserves credit for knowing his craft. Though the over all cast is good, this is a Jenn Gotzon film and were this theatrical we would be talking Oscar. Jenn Gotzon plays a top notch business woman who knows the art of the deal and is at the pinnacle of the ladder of success. I will just say that seldom has an actress had to make herself believable in so many settings and she pulls it off in the style of the great actresses during Hollywood's Golden Age.
This family friendly film was a delight. It kept my interest all the way through, with a good blend of humor and message. The desert was as much a part of the movie as the actors. Jenn Gotzon did a great job portraying an ambitious, money and power hungry broker. The directing by Chris Armstrong was excellent, he was able to take a predictable story and turn it into something that captures your interest throughout the entire movie. He expertly guided the filmography. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film.
Wow, guess I should've hung in there a little longer, but the first half hour was enough for me......I normally love the Inspirational movies, but this one just had poor acting, couldn't get passed that poor acting of the 1st half hour.
