Filled with heart, humor, and wit, WAR ROOM follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple who seemingly have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, their marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With guidance from Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. As the power of prayer and Elizabeth's newly energized faith transform her life, will Tony join the fight and become the man he knows he needs to be? Together, their real enemy doesn't have a prayer.

War Room Stunned
29 August 2015 | by homesmyheartSee all my reviews

War Room stunned me. Having seen some clips before its release, I wasn't sure how this movie was going to end up. The Kendrick Brothers movies keep getting better! The movie's matriarch, Miss Clara reminds me of several women I have known who took me under their wings of encouragement at different times in my life. I was impressed with the acting overall. The "father" and "daughter" have a moment though when you wish he would hug her & wonder why they didn't write that into the script. One time the tears of the daughter did not feel "real". Good humor breaks are a trademark of the Kendrick Brothers films-loved those in the midst of the intense emotions. The audience I watched it with clapped several times, were talking back to the screen and I heard a few "amens", too. A good sign. This is definitely a movie I will want to watch again and again.
