PENDULUM SWINGS follows a man into a dark place in his life - a place at which he arrives through a combination of bad decisions and forces beyond his control. When he finally hits bottom, he is presented with an opportunity to climb out of his despair with a helping hand from a small number of people who could have chosen to judge him or write him off, but choose instead to offer compassion and grace.

Powerful Movie
20 August 2011 | by kimberlymatherlySee all my reviews

I just have to say this movie is the Best Christian based film I have seen in a longtime. It took a lot of wonderful people to volunteer their time to make this happen.. It hits home to many many people and it touches each and everyone that see's this film.. I have heard so many people leave the theater in AWWW over this film.. There are funny parts, sad parts,real day to day views in a marriage and it keeps your attention thru the whole movie.. It took a lot of people to make this happen. Even with it being a low budget film you would think it was made by someone in Hollywood the actors,the script,the props, all the volunteer's,the actors and it couldn't have happened with out the wonderful Director Bill Rahn, Producer Amy Rahn & Adam Melton.. The actors were amazing to work with,the cast and crew were just as amazing...I would like to say to the Director Bill Rahn, Producers Amy Rahn & Adam Melton absolutely a JOB WELL DONE!!! It is a MUST SEE!!!!
