PRICELESS is a powerful story of James Stevens who was, at one time, a good man with a great life, but that was then and this is now. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash -- no questions asked. But when he discovers what he is delivering is actually who, he is compelled to save two beautiful and frightened sisters who are unaware of the danger that awaits them. Can love, strength, and faith redefine his past and change the course of his future? This unlikely hero risks it all to save these women, confront the forces that oppose him and ultimately discover the life he was meant to live.Written by

Engaging story! Been thinking about this movie all week!
I was kind of nervous about watching Priceless, but it was a really good experience for me. I was glad to see that the female lead was brave and strong, much more than just a victim in need of rescue, and I got so into the story that I was able to forget that I know the lead male actors from other work. All the actors do a great job of making the characters seem real, even if they were written as a bit too good (or bad) to be true. Honestly, some of the dialogue, especially the opening voice over, got pretty cheesy when it drifted into moral territory, but I wouldn't say this is a film just for religious people. The characters talk about God in terms of "not being alone" or "that little voice" - pretty generic terms that probably fit most people's beliefs.
I had never even considered going to see a "Christian" film in theaters before, but I am SO glad I did! I've been thinking about this movie for over a week now because some scenes just stick with you! In Priceless, camera work is careful not to show too much but still make the situations look dangerous and adequately sleazy, and since it wasn't until the next day that I realized the language was super clean, that must not have affected the authenticity of the bad guys for me.
