Michael is not thrilled about his family's move to New Hope, a small, close-knit southern town. After all, it is his senior year. He is even less enthused about joining the town's high school basketball team, especially when he begins to bump heads with the team's star player, Lucas. Lucas is fiercely loyal to the memory of his brother Chase -- the victim of a suicide that shook the entire town to its core. To Lucas, Michael is reaping everything Chase left behind -- an insult he refuses to accept. Jasmine, Chase's longtime girlfriend, still has not found peace a year after his tragic death -- until a chance meeting with Michael. Michael's faith is tested as he endures confrontations with Lucas on and off the basketball court and through his growing fascination with Jasmine. With topics including peer pressure, alcohol, sex, suicide, relationships, and acceptance, New Hope captures the life of the modern teenager. Written by
Little Disappointing........at times! though Great New Actor
R2 release another Christian movie which is ideal for teen and family viewing, great to see it in widescreen and with some great colour work, but watching on DVD as I have done some small problems with the sound at times.
The storyline of a preacher and his family moving to a new small town and the problems their older teen son has in his last year is great develops well, we see Samuel Davis star as the son and he steals the film with a stunning performance, closely matched by a R2 regular Ben Davies, but there were a few wooden performances.
R2 continue to develop and overall "New Hope" is another step forward though as I state a little disappointing in some aspects. I do feel that this will see the start of a great acting career for Samuel Davis a name to watch out for.
