A family movie with a simple Christian theme
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a small budget independent film and is a Christian movie. There are negatives to this film: the after-school-special quality of the camera work and direction; the contrived plotting the evil Mayor concocts, that is beyond implausible; the stock nature of the main Character Nick. These negatives are offset by the warm-hearted-ness of the message, the acting of young lead Christina Fougnie, and the simplicity of the relationship between the main characters.

In a nutshell, a young girl(Clancy) runs away from the consequences of her drug-addict mother's behavior. On the street, she ingratiates herself with a homeless, self-destructive, guilt-ridden Iraqi war veteran(Nick). He is good man who has given up on life. She is an innocent, hopeful Christian. Plot devices send a spiraling concoction of bad luck and evil against the two. The joy of the movie is seeing the slow simple friendship and love that develops between the two main characters. The impending tragedy, that you know must await at the ending, serves to give the movie a compelling nature.

Although simplistic, Jefferson Moore and Christina Fougnie come through with chemistry that makes it work. I'm not a Christian, but I was not offended by the simple loving belief in God that enabled the young girl to accept her tragic circumstances in a humble fashion, and the explicit ed statement of Chrstianity that she makes during the movie. Although melodramatic and simple, I enjoyed this niche movie's positive and heartfelt intent
