Incredible film with a fabulously talented cast
30 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wish there were a love button for this film. I just watched the incredible film Where Hope Grows. In summary it's this: Where Hope Grows is a story of finding redemption through faith, hope and love Kris Polaha plays "produce" a young grocery worker with Down's syndrome who befriends an alcoholic, struggling, single father. Kris plays this role incredibly well. He is truly what makes this film wonderful. He's very easy to love with a quiet strength that has an undertone through the whole film. Never underestimate him. He is truly a talented actor. The film as a whole made my heart swim with emotion, from laughter to tears, to anger at the situations posed both to the father as well as to "Produce" I highly recommend this film. It's just a wonderful movie to sit down with your family to
