Virtuous is a refreshing movie, telling the stories of several characters trapped in danger, fear, and ambition, who find their way to peace, hope, and restoration.
The film moves at a nice pace, opening with powerful events and slowly unraveling through multiple story lines. Although the central theme of the movie is the Proverbs 31 woman, there are secondary themes that enhance the movie without ever seeming heavy or confusing. The different character arcs blend together seamlessly to tell one unified story of what it means to be a virtuous woman.
Because of the intense events that are central to the film, the lead actors must handle a lot of weight. They do so very well. Of special note is Bonnie Johnson, who plays Judge Donna Ferguson. Her performance is moving and insightful.
One of the strongest elements of the film is the cinematography. James Burgess' eye for composition strongly establishes the mood of the film and even carries the drama at moments.
The movie may not be appropriate for young children as it deals with subjects of rape, drugs, and abuse. However, its depiction of hope and restoration will appeal to adults of all backgrounds.
