Catching Faith
12 February 2016 | by (St.louis) – See all my reviews

Catching Faith is a movie that should be enjoyed with your family if you're trying to watch a spiritual football movie. Directed by John K.D. Graham and also written by Graham and Alexandria Doyle. The stars of this movie are the Taylor family who are Alexa played by Lorena York, Beau played by Garret Weston, Ravyn played by Bethany Johnson and John Taylor played by Dariush Moslemi. The Taylors are kind of the "Perfect Family" they have the somewhat wealthy parents with the genius for a daughter and the star football star for a son. The son Beau and his team were having a good season and after a win he went out to a party with his friends. His family went out for ice cream and then Alexa got a call from her mother he she said that her father had gotten a heart attack. They went to go pick up Beau but when they see him at the house he was getting dropped off by the cops. His problems were put to the side because their grandpa died of his heart attack. The family was heartbroken but had to move on. After her father's death Alexa went to this group which was like a type of bible study with a group of 5 women that spoke about their troubles. The big problem that was still in the air was Beau getting in trouble with the cops and drinking. His parents made him turn himself in but the town was upset because he was going to be the one to bring them a championship. Eventually after the backlash of Beau and his teammates and fans being upset about him not playing he was able to move on from the situation and things got better. He was eventually able to come back on the team and help them win again. The main scenes in this movie are the different lessons that are being taught. Things such as God always being there to help you when you are in need of assistance. Knowing that God is there is hard to comprehend but eventually that were able to understand and push through. My personal opinion this movie was an 8/10 it gave a good storyline and gave many references to God which is what I like the most. My only issue with the film was it wasn't many football scenes in the movie but overall was still a good movie. But I was able to get through the movie being able to say that I learned something very important. If you are looking for an action packed movie with a lot of drama and all that stuff this is not the movie for you. But if you looking for a great storyline with some spiritual moments within the movie then this is the movie for you. I would recommend that people would show this movie at church or at a bible study to show to let it interpret the message that God is real and he is there to help.
