The Grace Card DVD Review

I'm not a big fan of most of the movies released in theaters these days, which is why I rarely go, unless it's a movie for the kiddos that's wholesome and fun.  Unfortunately, most movies made for the adult audience are tasteless, negative, and have all sorts of garbage language and immoral behavior.  Sorry, that was a little depressing, and made me sound like a bit of a debbie-downer, but it's a true tragic fact.  But fear not!  There are decent upstanding people making healthy, wholesome, encouraging and uplifting films.  One of them is The Grace Card.  When I received the dvd in the mail and read the back I wasn't sure how much I'd like it, but I was BLOWN AWAY.  It is such a powerful movie, full of hope, restoration, redemption and of course GRACE.  The story line, acting, music, everything was orchestrated professionally, this isn't a low budget cheesy film, it's dynamite!  

Here's an excerpt of the storyline:

"Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else. Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man. Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences-especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love."

I cried multiple times throughout the film, it's just so powerful and moving.  I loved it, and would highly recommend it.  It's rated PG-13, and I would advise to heed that rating as there are some heated discussions and scenes that display some hard truths about life.
