Storyline

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 R2 PRODUCTIONS

Watch Paint Dry
24 May 2014 | by anoceanroarsSee all my reviews

Christians really know how to write boring films and find the worst actors to convey the message. How hard is it to write a great or even a good film? In the Christian world is is nearly impossible. The story sounds like a decent premise, but it just falls flat. The writing is mostly the blame. Many of the lines are ridiculous and are not used in natural speaking. i wonder who green- lighted this movie. The other problem is the wooden acting. Lines are recited as if they are being read and sometimes the next part of the sentence is on another page and they pause as if they need to turn the page. The lead actor, Samuel Davis, is the only one with a small potential to make it as an actor, but only on television or as a supporting actor. Ben Davis is another that is not terrible, but he will probably be stuck in Christian films the rest of his career. The worst acting award was a tie between Reginald Robinson, the coach and Julie Kendall as Olivia Evans. i highly recommend that you buy some paint, paint your living room and the watch it dry. It will turn out to be a better use of your time.
