Yellow Day chronicles a young man's life-changing and inspirational journey through the mysterious Yellow Day. To many, the Yellow Day is simply a fun day celebrating outreach at a kid's camp, but to some, God bestows visions and miracles, transforming their lives. For this young man, the Yellow Day becomes an imaginative adventure: showing him true heroes, challenging him to face his fears, find love, and inviting him to accept grace, so that he can be shaped into who he is meant to be. On this day, the young man is presented remarkable stories in Faith, Hope, and Love coming from true stories of real life heroes in the special needs, chronic illness, and domestic abuse communities at the extraordinary Camp Grace, a beautiful retreat with the motto: "Lives are changed and souls are strengthened." Guided by a friendly 10-year-old girl, his spiritual journey back to the light, to witness the triumphs of others, face his fears, and fulfill his destiny, will test the strength of both his...

I love this movie! I could watch it over and over with anyone of any age!
It's understandable that Yellow Day is branded too Christian by most secular critics, who still give kudos to the acting or the music or the animation, or the cinematography or the multiple layers in the story. But Christian critics have highly recommended it for family viewing. Yellow Day is a wild ride with multiple insights: fun and serious, joyful and needful, happy and sad - just like the real Christian life. It is chastely romantic on many levels - the widower, the long married, the unrequited love, and the love at first sight. The acting is real; the Little Girl (Ashley Boettcher) is absolutely the adolescent Christian girl - bright, cheerful, sweet and willing to share her Faith; the Good Man (Drew Seely) is that good, nice, uncool but lovable guy who loves Jesus; the Woman in the Church (Lindsey Shaw) is the genius, cautious, cool girl whose rough times have led her to Christ; Whit (Akeem Smith), is the handsome, funny, smooth-talking guy who is unwittingly being led to Jesus; Taylor (Megan Holder) is the sunshiny, smiling, savvy Christian girl who is always underestimated by the non-Christian; the counselors act like counselors because they are counselors and the campers act like campers because they are campers. We see, in true stories, how their actions bear much good fruit, and how the promises of the beatitudes are fulfilled in their lives. The unconventional post-Disney animation displays the world of God's Grace in a gorgeous and intelligent manner, that world which is around us at all times. When the Good Man visits Camp Grace, God brings him into this world where he meets the Little Girl. Taking her up on her offer to help him find the Woman in the Church who comes there every year, the Good Man goes on a journey - the journey common to all Christians who strive to follow the Word. May the Light of Christ be with you!
