Sweet, but troubled
4 April 2020 | by DylanSoSee all my reviews

The acting is good, the story is a given but sweet. There's no real plot however you are rooting for characters. This is a nice little PureFlix movie.

There were two issues I had. One is I didn't think it was good that the older sister gave God an ultimatum. I'm not sure that's a good lesson. Hopefully the magnitude of her faith and prayer overshadows that part. And the other issue I had was when the black Mr Freeman in jest says "typical white kids, what do you expect from white kids." It is meant harmlessly, but the truth is if it had been a white Mr Freeman making the same harmless joke saying, "Typical black kids, what do you expect from black kids" certain people would do insane with accusation and anger.
